‘βάσκ᾽ ἴθι οὖλε ὄνειρε θοὰς ἐπὶ νῆας Ἀχαιῶν : ἐλθὼν ἐς κλισίην Ἀγαμέμνονος Ἀτρεΐδαο πάντα μάλ᾽ ἀτρεκέως ἀγορευέμεν ὡς ἐπιτέλλω : θωρῆξαί ἑ κέλευε κάρη κομόωντας Ἀχαιοὺς πανσυδίῃ : νῦν γάρ κεν ἕλοι πόλιν εὐρυάγυιαν Τρώων :
" Lying Dream , go to the ships of the Achaeans , into the tent of Agamemnon , and say to him word to word as I now bid you . Tell him to get the Achaeans instantly under arms , for he shall take Troy . "
" Up , go , thou baneful Dream , unto the swift ships of the Achaeans , and when thou art come to the hut of Agamemnon , son of Atreus , tell him all my word truly , even as I charge thee . Bid him arm the long-haired Achaeans with all speed , since now he may take the broad-wayed city of the Trojans . "
