Lysistrata   


I have never seen a woman with a finer body!


LYSISTRATA


Bound by such ties of mutual kindness, how can you bear to be at


war? Stop, stay the hateful strife, be reconciled; what hinders you?


LACONIAN ENVOY


We are quite ready, if they will give us back our rampart.


LYSISTRATA


What rampart, my dear man?


LACONIAN ENVOY


Pylos, which we have been asking for and craving for ever so long.


MAGISTRATE


In the Sea-god's name, you shall never have it!


LYSISTRATA


Agree, my friends, agree.


MAGISTRATE


But then what city shall we be able to stir up trouble in?


LYSISTRATA


Ask for another place in exchange.


MAGISTRATE


Ah! that's the ticket! Well, to begin with, give us Echinus, the


Maliac gulf adjoining, and the two legs of Megara.


LACONIAN ENVOY
