Not My Fault

Homer, Iliad 19.86-88 (Agamemnon speaking; tr. A.T. Murray, rev. William F. Wyatt):

but Zeus and Fate and Erinys, that walks in darkness,
since in the place of assembly they cast on my mind fierce blindness...

ἀλλὰ Ζεὺς καὶ Μοῖρα καὶ ἠεροφοῖτις Ἐρινύς,
οἵ τέ μοι εἰν ἀγορῇ φρεσὶν ἔμβαλον ἄγριον ἄτην...
