Πλούτων

1500ἄγε δὴ χαίρων Αἰσχύλε χώρει,
καὶ σῷζε πόλιν τὴν ἡμετέραν
γνώμαις ἀγαθαῖς καὶ παίδευσον
τοὺς ἀνοήτους: πολλοὶ δ᾽ εἰσίν:
καὶ δὸς τουτὶ Κλεοφῶντι φέρων
1505καὶ τουτὶ τοῖσι πορισταῖς
Μύρμηκί θ᾽ ὁμοῦ καὶ Νικομάχῳ,
τόδε δ᾽ Ἀρχενόμῳ:
καὶ φράζ᾽ αὐτοῖς ταχέως ἥκειν
ὡς ἐμὲ δευρὶ καὶ μὴ μέλλειν:
1510κἂν μὴ ταχέως ἥκωσιν, ἐγὼ
νὴ τὸν Ἀπόλλω στίξας αὐτοὺς
καὶ συμποδίσας
μετ᾽ Ἀδειμάντου τοῦ Λευκολόφου
κατὰ γῆς ταχέως ἀποπέμψω.


Αἰσχύλος

1515ταῦτα ποιήσω: σὺ δὲ τὸν θᾶκον
τὸν ἐμὸν παράδος Σοφοκλεῖ τηρεῖν
καὶ διασῴζειν, ἢν ἄρ᾽ ἐγώ ποτε
δεῦρ᾽ ἀφίκωμαι. τοῦτον γὰρ ἐγὼ
σοφίᾳ κρίνω δεύτερον εἶναι.
1520μέμνησο δ᾽ ὅπως πανοῦργος ἀνὴρ
καὶ ψευδολόγος καὶ βωμολόχος
μηδέποτ᾽ ἐς τὸν θᾶκον τὸν ἐμὸν
μηδ᾽ ἄκων ἐγκαθεδεῖται.

Πλούτων

φαίνετε τοίνυν ὑμεῖς τούτῳ
1525λαμπάδας ἱεράς, χἄμα προπέμπετε
τοῖσιν τούτου τοῦτον μέλεσιν
καὶ μολπαῖσιν κελαδοῦντες.
