Lysistrata   


seem; why, you could strangle a bull surely!


LAMPITO


Yes, indeed, I really think I could. It's because I do


gymnastics and practise the bottom-kicking dance.


CLEONICE (opening LAMPITO'S robe and baring her bosom)


And what superb breasts!


LAMPITO


La! you are feeling me as if I were a beast for sacrifice.


LYSISTRATA


And this young woman, where is she from?


LAMPITO


She is a noble lady from Boeotia.


LYSISTRATA


Ah! my pretty Boeotian friend, you are as blooming as a garden.


CLEONICE (making another inspection)


Yes, on my word! and her "garden" is so thoroughly weeded too!


LYSISTRATA (pointing to the Corinthian)


And who is this?


LAMPITO


'Tis an honest woman, by my faith! she comes from Corinth.


CLEONICE


Oh! honest, no doubt then-as honesty goes at Corinth.
