843

Chorus I grieve as I hear the many misfortunes that are now, and are yet to be, the lot of the barbarians.

Atossa 845O God! How much grief assails me! But most of all this sorrow wounds me, to hear of the shameful clothes which are now worn by my son. But I will depart, and when I have brought appropriate garments from the palace, 850I will make attempt to meet my son; for I will not forsake him whom I love so well in his affliction.Exit
