Lysistrata   




No, by the Dioscuri, surely not all that, my dear sir.


LYSISTRATA


Come to terms; never make a difficulty of two legs more or less!


MAGISTRATE (his eye on PEACE)


Well, I'm ready to strip down and get to work right now.


(He takes off his mantle.)


LACONIAN ENVOY (following out this idea)


And I also, to dung it to start with.


LYSISTRATA


That's just what you shall do, once peace is signed. So, if you


really want to make it, go consult your allies about the matter.


MAGISTRATE


What allies, I should like to know? Why, we are all erected;


there's no one who is not mad to be mating. What we all want is to


be in bed with our wives; how should our allies fail to second our


project?


LACONIAN ENVOY


And ours too, for certain sure!


MAGISTRATE


The Carystians first and foremost by the gods!


LYSISTRATA
