Orestes: O God of the Light, Apollo, how will the verdict go?
Leader [Fury]: O Night, dark mother, are you watching now?
Orestes is relieved from the torment of the furies via trial; Athena assembles a jury of ten citizens and both Orestes and the Furies plead their case. In the end Athena is the tie breaker and, because she was not born from a woman, she owes more allegiance to men and releases Orestes.
