SECOND SOLDIER

We never understand what he says, Princess.


SALOMÉ

Yes; he says terrible things about her.

[Enter a Slave].


THE SLAVE

Princess, the Tetrarch prays you to return to the feast.


THE YOUNG SYRIAN

Pardon me. Princess, but if you return not some misfortune may happen.


SALOMÉ

Is he an old man, this prophet?


THE YOUNG SYRIAN

Princess, it were better to return. Suffer me to lead you in.


SALOMÉ

This prophet . . . is he an old man?


FIRST SOLDIER

No, Princess, he is quite young.


SECOND SOLDIER

One cannot be sure. There are those who say he is Elias.
