λήψῃ δʼ ἴσως σφᾶς, ἢν σὺ μὴ ληφθῇς πάρος. ΠενθεύςPerhaps you will catch them, if you yourself are not caught before. Pentheu


κόμιζε διὰ μέσης με Θηβαίας χθονός·PENTHEUS: Conduct me through the very heart of Thebes, for I am the only man among them bold enough to do this deed. DIONYSUS: Thou alone bearest thy country's burden, thou and none other; wherefore there await thee such struggles as needs must. Follow me, for I will guide thee safely thither; another shall bring thee thence. PENTHEUS: My mother maybe. DIONYSUS: For every eye to see. PENTHEUS: My very purpose in going. DIONYSUS: Thou shalt be carried back, PENTHEUS: What luxury DIONYSUS: In thy mother's arms. PENTHEUS: Thou wilt e'en force me into luxury. DIONYSUS: Yes, to luxury such as this.


κόμιζε διὰ μέσης με Θηβαίας χθονός·Bring me through the midst of the Theban land. I am the only man of them who dares to perform this deed. Dionysu


μόνος γὰρ αὐτῶν εἰμʼ ἀνὴρ τολμῶν τόδε. ΔιόνυσοςBring me through the midst of the Theban land. I am the only man of them who dares to perform this deed. Dionysu


μόνος σὺ πόλεως τῆσδʼ ὑπερκάμνεις, μόνος·You alone bear the burden for this city, you alone. Therefore the labors which are proper await you.


τοιγάρ σʼ ἀγῶνες ἀναμένουσιν οὓς ἐχρῆν.You alone bear the burden for this city, you alone. Therefore the labors which are proper await you.


ἕπου δέ· πομπὸς δʼ εἶμʼ ἐγὼ σωτήριοςFollow me. I am your saving guide: another will lead you down from there. Pentheu


ΠενθεύςFollow me. I am your saving guide: another will lead you down from there. Pentheu


ΔιόνυσοςFollow me. I am your saving guide: another will lead you down from there. Pentheu


ΠενθεύςAnd you will be remarkable to all. Pentheu
