922

Chorus Over these poor men it can be said that they did much to harm our citizens and also the ranks of all the foreigners 925who died in abundance in the fighting.

Ill-fated beyond all women who are called by the name of mother is she who bore them. After she made her own child her own husband, 930she gave birth to these sons, who have thus ended their lives with kindred hands giving death for death.
