Chremylus
But go and hang yourself and don't breathe another syllable. [600] I will not be convinced against my will.

Poverty
“Oh! citizens of Argos! do you hear what he says?”

Chremylus
Invoke Pauson, your boon companion, rather.

Poverty
Alas! what is to become of me?

Chremylus
Get you gone, be off quick and a pleasant journey to you.

Poverty
[605] But where shall I go?

Chremylus
To gaol; but hurry up, let us put an end to this.

Poverty
as she departs
One day you will recall me.

Chremylus
[610] Then you can return; but disappear for the present. I prefer to be rich; you are free to knock your head against the walls in your rage.

Blepsidemus
And I too [615] welcome wealth. I want, when I leave the bath all perfumed with essences, to feast bravely with my wife and children and to fart in the faces of toilers and Poverty.

Chremylus
So that hussy has gone at last! [620] But let us make haste to put Plutus to bed in the Temple of Asclepius.

Blepsidemus
Let us make haste; else some bothering fellow may again come to interrupt us.

Chremylus
loudly
Cario, bring the coverlets and all that I have got ready from the house; [625] let us conduct the god to the temple, taking care to observe all the proper rites.
