"Theseus, followed by Perithous and a companion, rushes up to Andromache
who has fallen on her left knee and raises her right arm with the axe
in a last effort at resistance. Blood pours from the wound in her right
thigh. Behind her, Hippolyte and two other Amazons ride up to defend the
fallen queen." [Again, a very straight bow in the hand of Andromache]
