Euripides, Ion 1069-1073 (tr. David Kovacs):
For never, while she lives,
can her eyes bear to see, in the <god's>  bright
sunlight, foreigners
ruling over her house,
since she is begotten of noble lineage.

οὐ γὰρ δόμων γ᾿ ἑτέρους
ἄρχοντας ἀλλοδαποὺς        1070
ζῶσά ποτ᾿ ὄμμασιν <θεοῦ 'ν> φαεν-
ναῖς ἀνέχοιτ᾿ ἂν αὐγαῖς
ἁ τῶν εὐπατριδᾶν γεγῶσ᾿ οἴκων.

1071 <θεοῦ 'ν>
John C. Gibert ad loc.:
