Abas was an early king of Argos, the great-grandfather of Perseus.

O, great king-
We tremble as you walk by;
Your feats are known throughout the lands,
Your accomplisments are many.

O, great king-
We bow down in reverence:
For you are favored by great Hera
who in all Her glory
has blessed your shield
to be resistant to all.

O, great king-
We weep so at your death
We tear our hair and rent our clothes-
A fierce warrior were you
And your presence shall be missed.

O, great king-
We spin tales of your great deeds-
for your legacy
