ALEXANDER, xxx. 2-5

must not only become a captive in her life, but also
in her death be deprived of royal burial."

"
Nay,

O King," answered the chamberlain, "as regards her
burial, and her receiving every fitting honour, thou
hast no charge to make against the evil genius of
the Persians. For neither did my mistress Stateira,
while she lived, or thy mother or thy children, lack

any of their former great blessings except the light
of thy countenance, which Lord Oromazdes will
cause to shine again with lustre ; nor after her death
was she deprived of any funeral adornment, nay,
she was honoured with the tears of enemies. For
Alexander is as gentle after victory as he is terrible
in battle."

When Dareius heard this, his agitation and grief
swept him into absurd suspicions, and leading the
eunuch away into a more secluded part of his tent,
he said : " If thou also, together with the fortune
of the Persians, dost not side with the Macedonians,
and if I, Dareius, am still thy lord and master, tell
me, as thou reverest the great light of Mithras and
the right hand of thy king, is it not the least of
Stateira's misfortunes that I am now lamenting?
While she was alive did I not suffer more pitiful
evils? And would not my wretched fortune have
been more compatible with my honour if I had met
with an angry and savage enemy ? For what inter-
course that is proper can a young man have with
an enemy's wife when it leads to such marks of
honour?" While the king was still speaking, Tei-
reos threw himself down at his feet and besought
him to hold his peace, and neither to wrong Alex-
ander, nor shame his dead sister and wife, nor rob
himself of the greatest consolation for his disasters,
