Lysistrata   



Well and good! but they'll never get another drachma here.


MAGISTRATE


What do you propose to do then, pray?


LYSISTRATA


You ask me that! Why, we propose to administer the treasury


ourselves.


MAGISTRATE


You do?


LYSISTRATA


What is there in that to surprise you? Do we not administer the


budget of household expenses?


MAGISTRATE


But that is not the same thing.


LYSISTRATA


How so-not the same thing?


MAGISTRATE


It is the treasury supplies the expenses of the war.


LYSISTRATA


That's our first principle-no war!


MAGISTRATE


What! and the safety of the city?
