699

Chorus To Ilium, its purpose fulfilling, 700Wrath brought a marriage rightly named a mourning, [Note]exacting in later time requital for the dishonor done to hospitality and to Zeus, the partaker of the hearth, 705upon those who with loud voice celebrated the song in honor of the bride, even the bridegroom's kin to whom it fell that day to raise the marriage-hymn. 710But Priam's city has learned, in her old age, an altered strain, and now, I trust, wails a loud song, full of lamentation, calling Paris “evil-wed”; for she has born the burden of a life in which everything was destroyed, a life full of lamentation because of 715the wretched slaughter of her sons
