Abstract
This poem, as is well known, is a translation of the passage which ends the second chorus (and thus the second act) of Seneca's tragedy "Thyestes". Renaissance editions of the play differ in a number of details, but they are in agreement concerning the text of these lines, and it is therefore not misleading to reproduce the passage from a modern edition which is in tune with them and which has the advantage of being widely accessible.
