Euripides, Iphigenia Among The Taurians, 617-621


nanORESTES Whose then, if I may ask, the bloody deed? IPHIGENIA: To some within the temple this belongs. ORESTES: What tomb is destined to receive my corse? IPHIGENIA: The hallow'd fire within, and a dark cave. ORESTES O, that a sister's hand might wrap these limbs! IPHIGENIA: Vain wish, unhappy youth, whoe'er thou art, Hast thou conceived; for from this barbarous land Far is her dwelling. Yet, of what my power Permits (since thou from Argos draw'st thy birth) No grace will I omit: for in the tomb I will place much of ornament, and pour The dulcet labour of the yellow bee, From mountain flowers extracted, on thy pyre. But I will go, and from the temple bring The letter; yet 'gainst me no hostile thought Conceive. You, that attend here, guard them well, But without chains. To one, whom most I love Of all my friends, to Argos I shall send Tidings perchance unlook'd for; and this letter, Declaring those whom he thought dead alive, Shall bear him an assured and solid joy. (She enters the temple.) CHORUS (chanting) Thee, o'er whose limbs the bloody drops shall soon Be from the lavers sprinkled, I lament. ORESTES: This asks no pity, strangers: but farewell. CHORUS (chanting) Thee for thy happy fate we reverence, youth Who to thy country shall again return. PYLADES: To friends unwish'd, who leave their friends to die.
