Nay, old friend--[to ALCIMEDON, who wants to break in; then to ORESTES again]--though you slay us all, you have but lost the food and shelter we had given you; and the shedder of blood escapes not the Dread Watchers.
[Who had been cooling, starts and threatens her.] What know you of the Dread Watchers?

Andromache, once wife of Hector, Prince of Troy.
