Homer Iliad 1.265

Mightiest were these of men reared upon the earth; mightiest were they, and with the mightiest they fought, the mountain-dwelling centaurs, and they destroyed them terribly (original Greek).

Bakchylides Dithyramb 17

Theseus, you see Zeus’ clear gifts to me. It is your turn to leap into the loud-roaring sea. And your father lord Poseidon, son of Cronus, will grant you supreme glory throughout the well-wooded earth (original Greek).

Bakchylides Dithyramb 17

And Eriboea cried out to the descendant of Pandion with his bronze breastplate (original Greek).

Euripedes Medeia 665-681

Medea
Joy to you as well, Aegeus, son of wise Pandion! Where have you come from to be visiting the soil of this land?

Aegeus
I have come from the ancient oracle of Phoebus.

Medea
Why did you go to earth’s prophetic center?

Aegeus
To inquire how I might get offspring.

Medea
Have you really lived so long a life without children?

Aegeus
I am childless: it is the act of some god.

Medea
Have you a wife, or have you no experience of marriage?

Aegeus
I am not without a wife to share my bed.

Medea
What then did Phoebus tell you about children?

Aegeus
Words too wise for mortal to interpret.

Medea
Is it lawful for me to hear the response?

Aegeus
Most certainly: it calls for a wise mind.

Medea
What then did the god say? Tell me, if it is lawful to hear.

Aegeus
‘Do not the wineskin’s salient foot untie. . .’

Medea
Until you do what or come to what country?

Aegeus
‘. . .until you come to hearth and home again (original Greek).
