Lysistrata   




LYSISTRATA


Ah! good day, my dear friend. Your name is not unknown amongst us.


Your wife has it forever on her lips; and she never touches an egg


or an apple without saying: "This is for Cinesias."


CINESIAS


Really and truly?


LYSISTRATA


Yes, indeed, by Aphrodite! And if we fall to talking of men, quick


your wife declares: "Oh! all the rest, they're good for nothing


compared with Cinesias."


CINESIAS


Oh! please, please go and call her to me!


LYSISTRATA


And what will you give me for my trouble?


CINESIAS


Anything I've got, if you like. (Pointing to the evidence of


his condition)
I will give you what I have here!


LYSISTRATA


Well, well, I will tell her to come.


(She enters the Acropolis.)


CINESIAS
