A youth, the brother of Phaedria, having fallen in love with the damsel sent to the house of Thais, is dressed up in the clothes of the Eunuch.

It was famous for a fair which was held there. "Sunium's rocky brow" is mentioned by Byron in the song of the Greek Captive in the third Canto of Don Juan.

to himself. Good Gods! What a malady is this! That a man should become so changed through love, that you wouldn't know him to be the same person! Not any one was thereNot any one was there: --Ver. 226-7. Very nearly the same words as these occur in the Mostellaria of Plautus, 1. 29, 30: "Than whom, hitherto, no one of the youth of all Attica has been considered more temperate or equally frugal." less inclined to folly than he, and no one more discreet or more temperate. But who is it that's coming this way? Heyday! surely this is Gnatho, the Captain's Parasite; he's bringing along with him the damsel as a present to her. Heavens! How beautiful! No wonder if I make but a sorry figure here

GNATHO Do you really say so, puppy? Is it that you are at? THRASO to CHREMES. What fellow are you? What do you mean? What business have you with her? CHREMES I'll let you know: in the first place, I assert that she is a freeborn woman. THRASO starting. Ha! CHREMES A citizen of Attica. THRASO Whew! CHREMES My own sister. THRASO Brazen face! CHREMES Now, therefore, Captain, I give you warning; don't you use any violence toward her. Thais, I'm going to Sophrona, the nurse, that I may bring her here and show her these tokens. THRASO What! Are you to prevent me from touching what's my own?
