Fourth Choral Lyric
- The Chorus sings a song of vengeance.
- They bid the hounds of hell to whip the Maenads into a frenzy, so that they will destroy Pentheus.
- Justice, they howl, must punish the sacrilegious man.
- The Chorus prays for Bacchus (Dionysus) to come as a bull, a many headed dragon, or a fire breathing lion to trap Pentheus.
