Lysistrata   


I've got this up!


MYRRHINE


Wouldn't you like me to scent you?


CINESIAS


No, by Apollo, no, please don't!


MYRRHINE


Yes, by Aphrodite, but I will, whether you like it or not.


(She goes out again.)


CINESIAS


God, I wish she'd hurry up and get through with all this!


MYRRHINE (coming back with a flask of perfume)


Hold out your hand; now rub it in.


CINESIAS


Oh! in Apollo's name, I don't much like the smell of it; but


perhaps it will improve when it's well rubbed in. It does not


somehow smack of the marriage bed!


MYRRHINE


Oh dear! what a scatterbrain I am; if I haven't gone and brought


Rhodian perfumes!


CINESIAS


Never mind, dearest, let it go now.


MYRRHINE
