643

Chorus Nor did they cast their votes for the side of the males, 645disregarding the women's cause, since they honored the avenging eye of Zeus, against which there is no battling, and what house would have it 650defiling its roof? [Note]For he sits heavily upon it. They take reverent heed of their kin, petitioners of holy Zeus; therefore with pure 655altars shall they please the gods.
