nanIPHIGENIA I ask not that; to fortune that ascribe. ORESTES: Dying unknown, rude scoffs I shall avoid. IPHIGENIA: Wilt thou refuse? Why are thy thoughts so high? ORESTES: My body thou mayst kill, but not my name. IPHIGENIA: Wilt thou not say a native of what state? ORESTES: The question naught avails, since I must die. IPHIGENIA: What hinders thee from granting me this grace? ORESTES: The illustrious Argos I my country boast. IPHIGENIA: By the gods, stranger, is thy birth from thence? ORESTES: My birth is from Mycenae, once the bless'd.

nanIPHIGENIA Dost thou an exile fly, or by what fate? ORESTES: Of my free will, in part not free, I fly. IPHIGENIA: Wilt thou then tell me what I wish to know? ORESTES: Whate'er is foreign to my private griefs. IPHIGENIA: To my dear wish from Argos art thou come. ORESTES: Not to my wish; but if to thine, enjoy it. IPHIGENIA Troy, whose fame spreads so wide, perchance thou know'st. ORESTES: O that I ne'er had known her, ev'n in dreams! IPHIGENIA: They say she is no more, by war destroy'd. ORESTES: It is so: you have heard no false reports. IPHIGENIA: Is Helena with Menelaus return'd? ORESTES: She is; and one I love her coming rues. IPHIGENIA: Where is she? Me too she of old hath wrong'd. ORESTES: At Sparta with her former lord she dwells. IPHIGENIA: By Greece, and not by me alone abhorr'd! ORESTES: I from her nuptials have my share of grief. IPHIGENIA: And are the Greeks, as Fame reports, return'd? ORESTES: How briefly all things dost thou ask at once! IPHIGENIA: This favour, ere thou die, I wish to obtain. ORESTES: Ask, then: since such thy wish, I will inform thee.
