933

Chorus Of the same seed, in truth, they were utterly destroyed in unloving divisions, 935in maddened discord, in the ending of their strife.

Their hatred has ceased. Their life has been mingled in the blood-soaked earth. Now truly their blood is one. 940Ruthless is that which resolved their strife, the stranger from across the sea, sharpened iron rushed from the fire. Ruthless, too, was Ares, the cruel divider of their property, who made their father's curses come true.
