      I don’t think the man died wretchedly,       like some poor slave. Surely his own deceit      brought ruin on this house? His suffering      matches exactly what he did himself.      Remember my own Iphigeneia,                                                     his daughter, that sweet flower whom we mourn.      So let him not boast out loud in Hades.      He was the first to draw his sword,      and by the sword he’s been repaid.
