The son of Perseus, begot, the father of Hercules Who pos sessed this country of Thebes; where the earth-born crop of sown heroes sprung forth, of whose race Mars preserved a small number, who with children of their children people the city of Cadmus.' Hence (was) sprung Creon, son of Me naceus, the ruler of this land. And Creon becomes the father of this Megan, at whose nuptials' erst the whole Cadmean people shouted in tune with the ?ute, when the renowned Hercules conducted her into my house. But my son, having left Thebes, where I was settled, and this [my daughter] Megan, and his kindred, he chose to inhabit the Argive walls and Cyclopean city,' from which I take ?ight, having slain Electryon. But wishing to alleviate my woes, and to dwell in his own country, he o?'ers, as a great recompence to Burys theus-for my return, to render the land safe from pests, whether being subdued hythe good of Juno, or under the in?uence of fate. And through the rest.
