Pacuvius, Antiopa 18-20

by Tom Gardner

[Dirce finds and seizes Antiopa]

Agite ite evolvite rapite, coma
tractate per aspera saxa et humum;
scindite vestem ocius!

Come on, all of you, go on, roll her out, seize her,
drag her by her hair, across the ground and the rough rocks;
quickly, tear her clothes!
