    Summary

    Orestes: “O Zeus! (...) Look down at the fatherless chicks of a father-eagle, dead now, fallen in the deadly coils of a deadly viper.”

    - Aeschylus, Choephori 246-248

    “When vipers copulate, while the male is in the act of procreation and as soon as he has ejaculated his seed, the female seizes him by the neck, and does not let go until she has bitten through. The male dies in the way described, but the female suffers in return for the male the following punishment: avenging their father, the young while they are still within the womb gnaw at their mother and, eating through her bowels, thus make their way out.”

    - Herodotus, Book III 3.109

    Summary

    How a prophetic gift was filling her pieces of future started to fly through her head.
