κορυφαῖς ὑποβαλὼν ὦμον ἢ βραχίονα; Διόνυσοςputting a shoulder or arm under the mountain-tops? Dionysu


μὴ σύ γε τὰ Νυμφῶν διολέσῃς ἱδρύματαBut don’t destroy the seats of the Nymphs and the places where Pan plays his pipes. Pentheu


καὶ Πανὸς ἕδρας ἔνθʼ ἔχει συρίγματα. ΠενθεύςBut don’t destroy the seats of the Nymphs and the places where Pan plays his pipes. Pentheu


καλῶς ἔλεξας· οὐ σθένει νικητέονWell said. The women are not to be taken by force; I will hide in the pines. Dionysu


γυναῖκας· ἐλάταισιν δʼ ἐμὸν κρύψω δέμας. ΔιόνυσοςWell said. The women are not to be taken by force; I will hide in the pines. Dionysu


κρύψῃ σὺ κρύψιν ἥν σε κρυφθῆναι χρεώνYou will hide yourself as you should be hidden, coming as a crafty spy on the Maenads. Pentheu


ἐλθόντα δόλιον μαινάδων κατάσκοπον. ΠενθεύςYou will hide yourself as you should be hidden, coming as a crafty spy on the Maenads. Pentheu


καὶ μὴν δοκῶ σφᾶς ἐν λόχμαις ὄρνιθας ὣςOh, yes! I imagine that like birds they are in the bushes held in the sweetest grips of love. Dionysu


λέκτρων ἔχεσθαι φιλτάτοις ἐν ἕρκεσιν. ΔιόνυσοςOh, yes! I imagine that like birds they are in the bushes held in the sweetest grips of love. Dionysu


οὐκοῦν ἐπʼ αὐτὸ τοῦτʼ ἀποστέλλῃ φύλαξ·You have been sent as a guard against this very event.
