Lysistrata   


Will you all take this oath?


ALL


We do.


LYSISTRATA


Then I'll now consume this remnant.


(She drinks.)


CLEONICE (reaching for the cup)


Enough, enough, my dear; now let us all drink in turn to cement


our friendship.


(They pass the cup around and all drink. A great commotion is


heard off stage.)



LAMPITO


Listen! what do those cries mean?


LYSISTRATA


It's what I was telling you; the women have just occupied the


Acropolis. So now, Lampito, you return to Sparta to organize the plot,


while your comrades here remain as hostages. For ourselves, let us


go and join the rest in the citadel, and let us push the bolts well


home.


CLEONICE


But don't you think the men will march up against us?


LYSISTRATA
