Have thou too heed, nor let thy fear prevail
Above thy will. And do thou guard him, Hermes,
Whose blood is brother unto mine, whose sire
The same high God. Men call thee guide and guard,
Guide therefore thou and guard my suppliant
For Zeus himself reveres the outlaw's right,
Boon of fair escort, upon man conferred.
Eumendidas: the final play of the Oresteia, in which Orestes, Apollo, and the Erinyes go before Athena and eleven other judges chosen by her from the Athenian citizenry at the Areopagus, to decide whether Orestes' killing of his mother, Clytemnestra, makes him guilty of the crime of murder.
