"Myself, I am fleeing 'from land to land' in fear of my wild master, someone better suited [to be master] of horses than of men."[1]

[1] Quotation unidentifiable overall -- but within it, as indicated, 'from land to land' has been identified as an allusion to (?)Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound 682 (ma/stigi qei/a| gh=n pro\ gh=s e)lau/nomai). See web address 1.
[2] Part of Aelian fr. 134a Domingo-Forasté, 131 Hercher; see already, for its first part, at delta 679 (with the infinitive a)pie/nai "to go away" rather than a)fie/nai which doesn't make sense here).
