Not illustrated. 1758 Excerpt: ...particularly in Sophocles, by tjje name of f Qeov, or the God, ' ANTISTROPHE I. Minerva, first on thee I call, Daughter of Jove, immortal maid, Low beneath thy feet we fall, O bring thy sister Dian to out aid; Goddess of Thebes, from thy imperial throne Look with an eye of gentle pity down, And thou, far mooting Ph bus, once the friend Of this unhappy, this devoted land, O now if ever let thy hand Once more be stretch'd to fave and to defend STROPHE II. Great Thebes, my sons, is now no more, . She falls and ne'er again shall rise, Nought can her health or strength restore, The mighty nation sinks, she droops, me dies: Strip'd of her fruits behold the barren earth; The half-form'd infant struggles for a birth; The mother sinks unequal to her pain: Whilst quick as birds in airy circles fly, . Or lightnings srom an angry sky, Crouds press on crouds to Pluto's dark domain.. ANTISTROPHE IL Benold what heaps of wretches stain, Unbury'd, unlamented lye, Nor parents now nor friends remain To grace their deaths with pious obsequy; The aged matron and the blooming wife, Clung to the altars, sue for added life; With sighs and groans united Paeans rise; Re-echo'd still does great Apollo's name Their sorrows and their wants proclaim, Frequent, to him ascends the sacrifice. STROPHE III. Haste then, Minerva, beauteous maid, Descend in this asflictive hour, Haste to thy dying people's aid, Drive hence this baneful, this destructive pow'j Who comes not arm'd with hostile sword or mield, Yet strews with many a corse th' ensanguin'd field To Amphitrite's wide-extending bed 01 drive him, Goddess, from thy fav'rite land, Or let him, by thy dread command, Bury in Thracian waves his ignominious head. ANTISTROPHE III. Father of all, immortal Jove, O now thy fiery terror
