Lysistrata   


But how shall I purify myself before going back into the citadel?


CINESIAS


Nothing easier! you can wash at the Clepsydra.


MYRRHINE


But my oath? Do you want me to perjure myself?


CINESIAS


I'll take all responsibility; don't worry.


MYRRHINE


Well, I'll be off, then, and find a bed for us.


CINESIAS


There's no point in that; surely we can lie on the ground.


MYRRHINE


No, no! even though you are bad, I don't like your lying on the


bare earth.


(She goes back into the Acropolis.)


CINESIAS (enraptured)


Ah! how the dear girl loves me!


MYRRHINE (coming back with a cot)


Come, get to bed quick; I am going to undress. But, oh dear, we


must get a mattress.


CINESIAS


A mattress? Oh! no, never mind about that!
