304

Chorus What more fertile plain will you find in place of ours, 305if you abandon to the enemy this deep-soiled land and the water of Dirce which is the most nourishing of the streams that earth-encircling Poseidon 310and Tethys' children pour forth? Therefore, divine guardians of the city, hurl murderous destruction on the men outside our walls 315and panic that makes them throw away their weapons, and so win glory for these citizens. Defend the city and remain in possession of your home and throne 320in answer to our shrill, wailing prayers!
