ELENA di Euripide
The goddess Hera creates a ghost in all similar to Helen and sends
it to Troy with Paride, while the true Helen is hidden by Hermes in
Egypt as guest of King Proteus.
On the death of Proteus, the Teocliman son undermines Elena,
who rejects him, partly because the sister of Teoclimeno, the
priestess Teonoe (able to see the future), has predicted that he will
see her husband Menelaus.
Elena is thinking of her sad fate when she sees the Greek messenger Teucro arrive.
