656

Chorus Therefore let there fly forth from our overshadowed [Note]lips a prayer of gratitude. Never may pestilence 660empty this city of its men nor strife stain the soil of the land with the blood of slain inhabitants. But may the flower of its youth be unplucked, and may Ares, 665the partner of Aphrodite's bed, he who makes havoc of men, not shear off their bloom.
