 A WATCHMAN CHORUS OF ARGIVE ELDERS CLYTEMNESTRA, wife of AGAMEMNON  A HERALD  AGAMEMNON, King of Argos CASSANDRA, daughter of Priam, and slave of AGAMEMNON  AEGISTHUS, son of Thyestes, cousin of AGAMEMNON Servants, Attendants, Soldiers 
SceneBefore the palace of AGAMEMNON in Argos. In front of the palace thereare statues of the gods, and altars prepared for sacrifice. It is night. On theroof of the palace can be discerned a WATCHMAN.
I pray the gods to quit me of my toils, To close the watch I keep, this livelong year;For as a watch-dog lying, not at rest,Propped on one arm, upon the palace-roof Of Atreus' race, too long, too well I know  The starry conclave of the midnight sky, Too well, the splendours of the firmament, The lords of light, whose kingly aspect shows- What time they set or climb the sky in turn- The year's divisions, bringing frost or fire.
