Leader of the Chorus I admire your inventive genius; but, where is he? Sausage-Seller He is living in ancient Athens, the city of the garlands of violets. Leader of the Chorus How I should like to see him! What is his dress like, what hitiades. But you will judge for yourselves, for I hear the vestibule doors opening.
