CHORUS
But what will be done with him?

DICAEOPOLIS
This is a vase good for all purposes; it will be used as a vessel for holding all foul things, a mortar for pounding together law-suits, a lamp for spying upon accounts, and as a cup for the mixing up and poisoning of everything.

CHORUS
None could ever trust a vessel for domestic use that has such a ring about it.

DICAEOPOLIS
Oh! it is strong, my friend, and will never get broken, if care is taken to hang it head downwards.

CHORUS
There! it is well packed now!

BOEOTIAN
Marry, I will proceed to carry off my bundle.

CHORUS
Farewell, worthiest of strangers, take this informer, good for anything, and fling him where you like.
