Lysistrata   



LYSISTRATA


What other oath do you prefer?


CLEONICE


Let's take a white horse, and sacrifice it, and swear on its


entrails.


LYSISTRATA


But where shall we get a white horse?


CLEONICE


Well, what oath shall we take then?


LYSISTRATA


Listen to me. Let's set a great black bowl on the ground; let's


sacrifice a skin of Thasian wine into it, and take oath not to add one


single drop of water.


LAMPITO


Ah! that's an oath pleases me more than I can say.


LYSISTRATA


Let them bring me a bowl and a skin of wine.


CLEONICE


Ah! my dears, what a noble big bowl! what fun it will be to


empty it


LYSISTRATA
