299

Chorus No, neither Apollo nor Athena's strength can save you from perishing abandoned, 300not knowing where joy is in your heart—a bloodless victim of the gods below, a shadow.

You do not answer, but scorn my words, you who are fattened and consecrated to me? Living, you will be my feast, not slain at an altar; 305now you will hear this hymn, a spell to bind you.
