Texts

ἤδη, φίλτατε λύχνε, τρὶς ἔπταρες: ἦ τάχα τερπνὴν
εἰς θαλάμους ἥξειν Ἀντιγόνην προλέγεις;
εἰ γάρ, ἄναξ, εἴη τόδ᾽ ἐτήτυμον, οἷος Ἀπόλλων
θνητοῖς μάντις ἔσῃ καὶ σὺ παρὰ τρίποδι.

— Paton edition

Thrice hast thou sneezed, dear lamp! Is it, perchance, to tell me that delightful Antigone is coming to my chamber? For if, my lord, this be true, thou shalt stand by the tripod, like Apollo, and prophesy to men.
