bite my tool. Sausage-Seller “Son of Erechtheus, beware of this Cerberus that enslaves free men; he fawns upon you with his tail when you are dining, but he is lying in wait to devour your dishes should you turn your head an instant; at night he sneaks into the kitchen and, true dog that he is, licks up with one lap of his tongue both your dishes and ... the islands.” Demos By god, Glanis, you speak better than your brother. Cleon Condescend again to hear me and then judge:“A woman in sacred Athens will be delivered of a lion, who shall fight for the people against clouds of gnats with the same ferocity as if he were defending his whelps; care ye for him, erect wooden walls around him and towers of brass.”Do you understand that? Demos Not the least bit in the world. Cleon The god tells you here to look after me, for I am your lion. Demos How! You have become a lion and I never knew a thing about it? Sausage-Seller There is only one thing which he purposely keeps from you; he does not

s. Demos Come, let us see, whose are these oracles? Cleon Mine are those of Bacis. Demos to the Sausage-Seller And whose are yours? Sausage-Seller without hesitating Glanis's, the elder brother of Bacis. Demos And of what do they speak? Cleon Of Athens and Pylos and you and me and everything. Demos And yours? Sausage-Seller Of Athens and lentils and Lacedaemonians and fresh mackerel and scoundrelly flour-sellers and you and me. Ah! ha! now watch him gnaw his own tool with chagrin! Demos Come, ryours? Sausage-Seller without hesitating Glanis's, the elder brother of Bacis. Demos And of what do they speak? Cleon Of Athens and Pylos and you and me and everything. Demos And yours? Sausage-Seller Of Athens and lentils and Lacedaemonians and fresh mackerel and scoundrelly flour-sellers and you and me. Ah! ha! now watch him gnaw his own tool with chagrin! Demos Come, read them out to me and especially that one I like so much, which says that I shall become an eagle and soar among the clouds.

Second Semi-Chorus singing This indeed may be termed talking. Oh, benefactor of the human race, proceed and you will be the most illustrious of the Greeks. You alone shall have sway in Athens, the allies will obey you, and, trident in hand, you will go about shaking and overturning everything to enrich yourself.

t if ever peace is restored to him, if ever he returns to his lands to comfort himself once more with good cakes, to greet his cherished olives, he will know the blessings you have kept him out of, even though paying him a salary; and, filled with hatred and rage, he will rise, burning with desire to vote against you. You know this only too well; it is for this you rock him to sleep with your lies. Cleon Is it not shameful, that you should dare thus to calumniate me before Demos, me, to whom Athens, I swear it by Demeter, already owes more than it ever did to Themistocles? Sausage-Seller declaiming Oh! citizens of Argos, do you hear what he says? to Cleon You dare to compare yourself to Themistocles, who found our city half empty and left it full to overflowing, who one day gave us the Piraeus for dinner, and added fresh fish to all our usual meals. You, on the contrary, you, who compare yourself with Themistocles, have only sought to reduce our city in size, to shut it within its wa

Second Semi-Chorus singing Oh! Pallas, guardian of Athens, you, who reign over the most pious city, the most powerful, the richest in warriors and in poets, hasten to my call, bringing in your train our faithful ally in all our expeditions and combats, Victory, who smiles on our choruses and fights with us against our rivals. Oh! goddess! manifest yourself to our sight; this day more than ever we deserve that you should ensure our triumph.

Leader of First Semi-Chorus Let us sing the glory of our forefathers; ever victors, both on land and sea, they merit that Athens, rendered famous by these, her worthy sons, should write their deeds upon the sacred peplus. As soon as they saw the enemy, they at once sprang at him without ever counting his strength. Should one of them fall in the conflict he would shake off the dust, deny his mishap and begin the struggle anew. Not one of these generals of old time would have asked Cleaenetus to dust, deny his mishap and begin the struggle anew. Not one of these generals of old time would have asked Cleaenetus to be fed at the cost of the State; but our present men refuse to fight, unless they get the honors of the Prytaneum and precedence in their seats. As for us, we place our valor gratuitously at the service of Athens and of her gods; our only hope is that, should peace ever put a term to our toils, you will not grudge us our long, scented hair nor our delicate care for our toilet.

Chorus singing Thus then at Athens we have something more fiery than fire, more impudent than impudence itself! 'Tis a grave matter; come, we will push and jostle him without mercy. There, you grip him tightly under the arms; if he gives way at the onset, you will find him nothing but a craven; I know my man.

Chorus singing Oh! you scoundrel! you impudent bawler! everything is filled with your daring, all Attica, the Assembly, the Treasury, the decrees, the tribunals. As a furious torrent you have overthrown our city; your outcries have deafened Athens and, posted upon a high rock, you have lain in wait for the tribute moneys as the fisherman does for the tunny-fish.

e city in memory of your bravery. Leader of the Chorus Oh! the impostor! the dull varlet! See! he treats us like old dotards and crawls at our feet to deceive us; but the cunning wherein his power lies shall this time recoil on himself; he trips up himself by resorting to such artifices. Cleon Oh citizens! oh people! see how these brutes are bursting my belly. Leader of the Chorus What shouts! but it's this very bawling that incessantly upsets the city! Sausage-Seller I can shout too—and so loud that you will flee with fear. Leader of the Chorus If you shout louder than he does I will strike up the triumphal hymn; if you surpass him in impudence the cake is ours. Cleon I denounce this fellow; he has had tasty stews exported from Athens for the Spartan fleet. Sausage-Seller And I denounce him; he runs into the Prytaneum with an empty belly and comes out with it full. Demosthenes And by Zeus! he carries off bread, meat, and fish, which is forbidden. Pericles himself never had this righ

is it? Why do you call me? Demosthenes Come here, come and learn about your good luck, you who are Fortune's favorite! Nicias Come! Relieve him of his basket-tray and tell him the oracle of the god; I will go and look after the Paphlagonian. He goes into the house. Demosthenes First put down all your gear, then worship the earth and the gods. Sausage-Seller Done. What is the matter? Demosthenes Happiness, riches, power; to-day you have nothing, to-morrow you will have all, oh! chief of happy Athens. Sausage-Seller Why not leave me to wash my tripe and to sell my sausages instead of making game of me? Demosthenes Oh! the fool! Your tripe! Do you see these tiers of people? Sausage-Seller Yes. Demosthenes You shall be master to them all, governor of the market, of the harbors, of the Pnyx; you shall trample the Senate under foot, be able to cashier the generals, load them with fetters, throw them into gaol, and you will fornicate in the Prytaneum. Sausage-Seller What! I? Demosthenes You,
