988

Xerxes In truth you stir yearning in me for my gallant comrades 990when you tell me of woe, surpassing woe, hateful and unforgettable. The heart within me cries out aloud for the wretched ones.

Chorus And yet there are others too whom we miss: Xanthis, commander of a myriad Mardian men, and warlike Anchares, 995Diaexis, too, and Arsaces, captains of the horse, Cegdadatas and Lythimnas, and Tolmus, insatiate in war. I marvel, 1000that they do not follow behind around your wheeled tent.
