Lysistrata   




Do you hear that? What insolence!


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


I am a free woman, I tell you.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


I will make you hold your tongue, never fear!


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Ah ha! you shall never sit any more amongst the Heliasts.


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN (to his torch)


Burn off her hair for her!


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN (to her pot)


Achelous, do your duty!





(The women pitch the water in their


water-pots over the old men.)






LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


Oh, dear! oh, dear! oh, dear!


LEADER OF CHORUS OF WOMEN


Was it hot?


LEADER OF CHORUS OF OLD MEN


Hot, great gods! Enough, enough!
