"praebuimus longis" Pentheus "ambagibus aures" inquit, "ut ira mora vires absumere posset. praecipitem, famuli, rapite hunc cruciataque diris corpora tormentis Stygiae demittite nocti."
"we have lent our ears to your lengthy ramblings" said Pentheus "so that anger could take strength away from the wait. Guards, seize him headlong and send his body, tortured with dire torments, to the Stygian darkness."

ut fremit acer equus, *** bellicus aere canoro signa dedit tubicen, pugnaeque assumit amorem, Penthea sic ictus longis ululatibus aether movit, et audito clamore recanduit ira.
just as an eager horse snorts, when a trumpeter gave the signal with melodious bronze and brings love for battle, so the air, struck with long ululations rouses Pentheus, and, when the noise was heard, his anger grew white.
