Translated by E. Morshead.
The King of Argos
Herald of Aegyptus
Chorus of the Daughters of Danaus
A sacred precinct near the shore in Argos. Several statues of the gods can be seen, as well as a large altar. As the play opens, Danaus, and his fifty daughters, the maidens who compose the Chorus, enter. Their costumes have an oriental richness about them not characteristic of the strictly Greek. They carry also the wands of suppliants. The Chorus is singing.
