The ambassador also asked her regarding the duration of the reign of
Croesus and who would be his successor? If the dumb prince would ever
be able to speak up? Whom should he befriend for attacking Persia.
The answer was:
The reign shall last,
Till a mule ascends the throne,
If the dumb prince regains his voice,
A calamity shall follow, the kingdom will be gone.
Alliance should be forged before the fight,
With a Greek ruler who has the most might.
Croesus will come out alive from the fire,
But, without doubt, shall lose the empire.
