Chorus
Singing.
At Phanae, near the [1695] Clepsydra, there dwells a people who have neither faith nor law, the Englottogastors, who reap, sow, pluck the vines and the figs with their tongues; [1700] they belong to a barbaric race, and among them the Philippi and the Gorgiases are to be found; 'tis these Englottogastorian Philippi who introduced the custom all over Attica [1705] of cutting out the tongue separately at sacrifices.
