Triopas: Remove your army from my land.
Agamemnon: Why, I like your land, I think we'll stay. I like your soldiers too.
Triopas: They won't fight for you.
Agamemnon: That's what the Messenians said, and the Acardians, and the Opeians, now they all fight for me.
Triopas: You can't have the whole world, Agamemnon. It's too big, even for you.
Agamemnon: I don't want to watch another massacre. Let's settle this war in the old manner. Your best fighter against my best.
Triopas: And if my man wins?
Agamemnon: We'll leave Thessaly for good.
[cheers from Thessalian army. Boagrius comes out from the centre of the army]
Triopas: Boagrius has this effect on many heroes.
Agamemnon: Be careful who you insult, old king.
