Cario SCENE: —The Orchestra represents a public square in Athens. In the background is the house of Chremylus. A ragged old blind man enters, followed by Chremylus and his slave Cario. What an unhappy fate, great gods, to be the slave of a fool! A servant may give the best of advice, but if his master does not follow it, the poor slave must inevitably have his share in the disaster; for fortune does not allow him to dispose of his own body, it belongs to his master who has bought it. Alas! 'tis the way of the world. But the god, Apollo,in tragic style whose oracles the Pythian priestess on her golden tripod makes known to us, deserves my censure, for surely he is a physician and a cunning diviner; and yet my master is leaving his temple infected with mere madness and insists on following a blind man.

Chremylus Plutus. It must be done, no matter how. Blepsidemus Is he then really blind? Chremylus Yes, undoubtedly. Blepsidemus I am no longer surprised he never came to me.

Chremylus But I have thought the matter well over, and the best thing is to make Plutus lie in the Temple of Asclepius. Blepsidemus Unquestionably that's the very best thing.

to dedicate myself entirely to my country's service? Just Man Is the country served by vile intrigue? Informer It is served by watching that the established law is observed —by allowing no one to violate it. Just Man That's the duty of the tribunals; they are established to that end. Informer And who is the prosecutor before the dicasts? Just Man Whoever wishes to be. Informer Well then, it is I who choose to be prosecutor; and thus all public affairs fall within my province. Just Man I pity Athens for being in such vile clutches. But would you not prefer to live quietly and free from all care and anxiety? Informer To do nothing is to live an animal's life. Just Man Thus you will not change your mode of life? Informer No, though they gave me Plutus himself and the silphium of Battus. Just Man To the Informer Come, quick, off with your cloak. The Informer does not move. Cario Hi! friend! it's you they are speaking to. Just Man Off with your shoes. The Informer still remains motionless.
