Lysistrata   




...or draw a sword.


CLEONICE


I'll haste and buy a pair of slippers this instant.


LYSISTRATA


Now tell me, would not the women have done best to come?


CLEONICE


Why, they should have flown here!


LYSISTRATA


Ah! my dear, you'll see that like true Athenians, they will do


everything too late.... Why, there's not a woman come from the


shore, not one from Salamis.


CLEONICE


But I know for certain they embarked at daybreak.


LYSISTRATA


And the dames from Acharnae! why, I thought they would have been


the very first to arrive.


CLEONICE


Theagenes' wife at any rate is sure to come; she has actually been


to consult Hecate.... But look! here are some arrivals-and there are


more behind. Ah! ha! now what countrywomen may they be?


LYSISTRATA
