Euripides, Rhesus, 470-479


θῶμεν θεοῖσί τ' ἀκροθίνι' ἐξέλῃςSoon as the Gods have had their first-fruits, I


ξὺν σοὶ στρατεύειν γῆν ἐπ' ̓Αργείων θέλωWith thee will sail—so help me Zeus on high!—


καὶ πᾶσαν ἐλθὼν ̔Ελλάδ' ἐκπέρσαι δορίAnd sack all Hellas with the sword, till these


ὡς ἂν μάθωσιν ἐν μέρει πάσχειν κακῶς.Doers of deeds shall know what suffering is. HECTOR.


εἰ τοῦ παρόντος τοῦδ' ἀπαλλαχθεὶς κακοῦBy heaven, could I once see this peril rolled


πόλιν νεμοίμην ὡς τὸ πρίν ποτ' ἀσφαλῆPast us, and live in Ilion as of old


ἦ κάρτα πολλὴν θεοῖς ἂν εἰδείην χάριν.Untrembling, I would thank my gods! To seek


τὰ δ' ἀμφί τ' ̓́Αργος καὶ νομὸν τὸν ̔ΕλλάδοςArgos and sack the cities of the Greek-


οὐχ ὧδε πορθεῖν ῥᾴδι', ὡς λέγεις, δορί.’Twere not such light work as thou fanciest. RHESUS.


οὐ τούσδ' ἀριστέας φασὶν ̔Ελλήνων μολεῖν;These Greeks that face thee, are they not their best? P. 26, l. 480. It may be remarked that the play here uses a fairly common Homeric phrase in a sense which the scholars of our tradition knew but rejected. HECTOR.
