T. Maccius Plautus, Stichus, or The Parasite Rebuffed (ed. Henry Thomas Riley), Introduction, THE SUBJECT. (search)
THE SUBJECT. THE plot of this Play (which is supposed by some Commentators not to have been written by Plautus) is extremely meagre. Antipho, a wealthy and jovial old gentleman of Athens, has two daughters, Philumena and Pamphila. They are married to two brothers, Epignomus and Pamphilus, who, having run through their property in the company of idlers and Parasites, have, with the view of retrieving their fortunes, taken to merchandize. Having been absent three years from home, and no tidings resolve, however, to maintain their fidelity to their absent husbands. Philumena sends the Parasite, Gelasimus, to the harbour to see if any ships have arrived. In the meantime, the boy, Pinacium, brings her word that her husband has. returned to Athens. He and his brother meet the Parasite, and resist all his attempts to fasten himself upon them; they then go home, and become reconciled to Antipho, from whom, in their poverty, they had become estranged; and who now requests them to make him a p

Enter SAGARINUS. SAGARINUS Hail! Athens, thou nurse of Greece; country of my master, hail! How joyously do I behold thee. But I have a wish to see how my mistress and fellow-servant, Stephanium, is faring. For I bade Stichus to give her my regards, and to tell her that I should come to-day, so that she might cook a dinner in good time. But, surely, here's Stichus. with a cask of wine STICHUS to himself. A clever thing you did, master, when you presented your servant, Stichus, with this gift. OAGARINUS How? Are you dreaming? STICHUS I' faith, I'm telling you the truth. SAGARINUS Who then gave you this? STICHUS What matters that to you? I wish us this day to wash away everything of foreign climes. Leave them alone; let's now attend to Athens; follow me. Do you at once make haste, and bathe. SAGARINUS I have bathed. STICHUS Very good follow me, then, this. way in-doors, Sagarinus. SAGARINUS Of course, I follow. By mytroth, this beginning pleases me as I return home; a happy omen and

ter-vessel with three spouts, which received its name from "nasum," "a spout," compounded with "tres," "three."? GELASIMUS Really, this fellow's playing the ÆdilePlaying the Ædile: The writer here again refers, in a play the scene of which is at Athens, to Roman customs. The Ædile was a public officer at Rome, whose business it was to see that the streets, houses, and temples, were kept clean. They were chosen by the votes (suffragium) of the common people, to which fact Gelasimus alludes in thamine from my stomach. PINACIUM And then, besides, he has brought some ParasitesBrought some Parasites: The arch boy only adds this to put Gelasimus in a fright, in which he fully succeeds. There was no necessity to import Parasites from Asia to Athens. with him. GELASIMUS Alas! to my confusion, I'm undone. PINACIUM Right funny fellows. GELASIMUS I' faith, I'll sweep this dust back, which I just now swept together. Sweeps it back. Those bon mots are now on sale, which I was saying I wouldn't s

custom in those times of lying at anchor during the night, and sailing in the day-time only, as it is clear that reference cannot here be made to the harbour from which they originally set out, as that was in Asia, and they could not have reached Athens from Asia within twenty-four hours. Epignomus and his brother appear to have freighted two ships with the valuable property which they had acquired in partnership. together; but to-day my ship weighed anchor a little the soonest. Take these peoplstage, by reminding the Spectators that the scene is at Athens. where greater freedom and indulgence was allowed to slaves than at Rome. to the AUDIENCE that men, who are slaves, drink, court, and give invitations to dinner? This is allowed us at Athens. But when I think of it, rather than meet with censure, there's here, too, another door to the back buildings of our house. I'll go that way to market; by that way I'll bring back the provisions--through the garden there's a passage that communic
