[500] Off to the Devil with you, Megarians! The goddess hates you. She recollects that you were the first to rub her the wrong way. Athenians, you are not well placed for pulling. [505] There you are too busy with law-suits; if you really want to free the goddess, get down a little towards the sea.

Leader of the Chorus
Come, friends, none but husbandmen on the rope.

Hermes
Ah! that will do ever so much better.

Leader of the Chorus
[510] He says the thing is going well. Come, all of you, together and with a will.
