Euripides, Hippolytus, 983-991


πάτερ, μένος μὲν ξύντασίς τε σῶν φρενῶνFather, thy wrath and the tension of thy mind are terrible; yet this charge, specious though its arguments appear


δεινή: τὸ μέντοι πρᾶγμ', ἔχον καλοὺς λόγουςFather, thy wrath and the tension of thy mind are terrible; yet this charge, specious though its arguments appear


εἴ τις διαπτύξειεν οὐ καλὸν τόδε.becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἐγὼ δ' ἄκομψος εἰς ὄχλον δοῦναι λόγονbecomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἐς ἥλικας δὲ κὠλίγους σοφώτερος:becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ἔχει δὲ μοῖραν καὶ τόδ': οἱ γὰρ ἐν σοφοῖςbecomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


φαῦλοι παρ' ὄχλῳ μουσικώτεροι λέγειν.becomes a calumny, if one lay it bare. Small skill have I in speaking to a crowd, but have a readier wit for comrades of mine own age and small companies. Yea, and this is as it should be; for they, whom the wise despise, are better qualified to speak before a mob.


ὅμως δ' ἀνάγκη, ξυμφορᾶς ἀφιγμένηςYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain


γλῶσσάν μ' ἀφεῖναι. πρῶτα δ' ἄρξομαι λέγεινYet am I constrained under the present circumstances to break silence. And at the outset will I take the point which formed the basis of thy stealthy attack on me, designed to put me out of court unheard; dost see yon sun, this earth? These do not contain

1000. to mock at friends is not my way, father, but I am still the same behind their backs as to their face. The very crime thou thinkest to catch me in, is just the one I am untainted with, for to this day have I kept me pure from women. Nor know I aught thereof, save what I hear
