Tigris and others

TIGRIS: Henceforth, whose hounds are we?
LACHNE: I am Actaeon's hound still.
CHAROPS: Shouldn't we belong to the moon?
TIGRIS: Tigris, hound of the moon!
LACHNE: Tigris and Lachne, two of Actaeon's hounds.
POEMENIS: Tigris and Lachne, who tore the hart who was Actaeon.
LACHNE: Poemenis, along with Tigris and Lachne...
CHAROPS: We are hounds of the huntress who is the moon. Why should such hounds speak of a hart
                      torn and as nameless as any hart?

Charops and others ‏

CHAROPS: Henceforth we are hounds of the moon.
ICHNOBATES: For me, henceforth I am not cruel, nor will the sophistry of need occur to me.
AGRE: You will starve, then?
EUDROMAS: If only Actaeon had starved!
CHAROPS: That hounds of the moon should speak so!
ICHNOBATES: I will starve, if I cannot live off the grasses of the earth. My thirst, though, will feed
                            on that cursed fount.

Dinomache and others

DINOMACHE: Were the men in Actaeon's company metamorphosed?
PACHYLUS: They may not have accompanied him to that bourne.
LEBROS: They hung back, then?
PACHYLUS: They may not have accompanied him as far as that bourne.
AETHON: Did you hang back, Lebros, upon seeing that bourne and its possessor?
DINOMACHE: Nor did we accompany him as far as that bourne. What will-o'-the-wisp
                             led away men and hounds; men, and yet not Actaeon?
AETHON: Hounds and men were led away; hounds, and yet not Lebros.
