About Agamemnon, and about when he was murdered by his wife Clytemnestra.

The line: "I'm sorry she was sacrificed" refers to Iphigenia, their daughter; whom he sacrificed to Artemis in order to gain winds to sail to Troy.

O Clytemnestra,

One I loved

and still do love!

Spare me now

for it is not my time

To leave this place

and depart for the

River Styx.

I'm sorry

She was sacrificed,

Have pity please!

Cruel, cruel Artemis



Do not raise the knife!


Do not bring it down!


Stop I say!

Do not!

Do not!

Do not!
