Lycophron, Alexandra, 249-257


καὶ δὴ καταίθει γαῖαν ὀρχηστὴς ἌρηςAnd now Ares, the dancer, fires the land, with his conch leading the chant of blood. And all the land lies ravaged before my eyes and, as it were fields of corn, bristle the fields of the gleaming spears. And in my ears seems a voice of lamentation from the tower tops reaching to the windless seats of air, with groaning women and rending of robes, awaiting sorrow upon sorrow.
