The girl's advice is pious; you, [465] dear friend, will do what she says, if you are wise.

I will. In regard to a just deed, it is unreasonable for two people to argue, but reasonable to jump to action. But, by the gods, my friends, when I attempt this task, let me have your silence, [470] since if my mother hears of it, I believe that this attempt which I will dare shall in the end cause me bitterness.Exit Chrysothemis on the spectators' right.
