Lysistrata   


Don't you feel a strong nervous tension in the morning?


MAGISTRATE


Yes, and a dreadful, dreadful torture it is! Unless peace is


made very soon, we shall find no recourse but to make love to


Clisthenes.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


Take my advice, and arrange your clothes as best you can; one of


the fellows who mutilated the Hermae might see you.


MAGISTRATE


Right, by Zeus.


(He endeavours, not too successfully, to conceal his condition.)


LACONIAN ENVOY



Quite right, by the Dioscuri. There, I will put on my tunic.


MAGISTRATE


Oh! what a terrible state we are in! Greeting to you, Laconian


fellow-sufferers.


LACONIAN ENVOY (addressing one of his countrymen)


Ah! my boy, what a terrible thing it would have been if these


fellows had seen us just now when we were on full stand!


MAGISTRATE


Speak out, Laconians, what is it brings you here?
