have done enough; then take your bath, eat, swallow and devour; here are three obols.” Then the Paphlagonian filches from one of us what we have prepared and makes a present of it to our old man. The other day I had just kneaded a Spartan cake at Pylos, the cunning rogue came behind my back, sneaked it and offered the cake, which was my invention, in his own name. He keeps us at a distance and suffers none but himself to wait upon the master; when Demos is dining, he keeps close to his side witit, friend. Let us see! what can be done? Who will get us out of this mess? Nicias The best thing, friend, is our famous “Let-us-bolt!” Demosthenes But none can escape the Paphlagonian, his eye is everywhere. And what a stride! He has one leg on Pylos and the other in the Assembly; his arse gapes exactly over the land of the Chaonians, his hands are with the Aetolians and his mind with the Clopidians. Nicias It's best then to die; but let us seek the most heroic death. Demosthenes Let me think<

ufficiently through the night, spout it along the street, recite it to all you met? Have you bored your friends enough with it? And for this you deem yourself an orator. You poor fool! Sausage-Seller And what do you drink yourself then, to be able all alone by yourself to dumbfound and stupefy the city so with your clamor? Cleon Can you match me with a rival? Me? When I have devoured a good hot tunny-fish and drunk on top of it a great jar of unmixed wine. I say “to Hell with the generals of Pylos!” Sausage-Seller And I, when I have bolted the tripe of an ox together with a sow's belly and swallowed the broth as well, I am fit, though slobbering with grease, to bellow louder than all orators and to terrify Nicias. Chorus I admire your language so much; the only thing I do not approve is that you swallow all the broth yourself. Cleon Even though you gorged yourself on sea-dogs, you would not beat the Milesians. Sausage-Seller Give me a bullock's breast to devour, and I am a man to traf

shes in To my aid, my beloved lies! I am going to destroy you, or my name is lost. Sausage-Seller Oh! how he diverts me with his threats! His bluster makes me laugh! And I dance the mothon for joy, and sing at the top of my voice, cuckoo! Cleon Ah! by Demeter! if I do not kill and devour you, may I die! Sausage-Seller If you do not devour me? and I, if I do not drink your blood to the last drop, and then burst with indigestion. Cleon I, I will strangle you, I swear it by the front seat which Pylos gained me. Sausage-Seller By the front seat! Ah! might I see you fall into the hindmost seat! Cleon By heaven! I will put you to the torture. Sausage-Seller What a lively wit! Come, what's the best to give you to eat? What do you prefer? A purse? Cleon I will tear out your insides with my nails. Sausage-Seller And I will cut off your victuals at the Prytaneum. Cleon I will haul you before Demos, who will mete out justice to you. Sausage-Seller And I too will drag you before him and belch for

who are you? Sausage-Seller His rival. For many a long year have I loved you, have I wished to do you honor, I and a crowd of other men of means. But this rascal here has prevented us. You resemble those young men who do not know where to choose their lovers; you repulse honest folks; to earn your favours, one has to be a lamp-seller, a cobbler, a tanner or a currier. Cleon I am the benefactor of the people. Sausage-Seller In what way, please? Cleon In what way? I supplanted the Generals at Pylos, I hurried thither and I brought back the Laconian captives. Sausage-Seller And I, whilst simply loitering, cleared off with a pot from a shop, which another fellow had been boiling. Cleon Demos, convene the assembly at once to decide which of us two loves you best and most merits your favour. Sausage-Seller Yes, yes, provided it be not at the Pnyx. Demos I could not sit elsewhere; it is at the Pnyx that you must appear before me. He sits down on a stone in the Orchestra. Sausage-Seller Ah!

Cleon No, my brave friends, no, you are running too fast; I have done a sufficiently brilliant deed to shut the mouth of all enemies, so long as one of the bucklers of Pylos remains. Sausage-Seller Of the bucklers! Hold! I stop you there and I hold you fast. For if it be true that you love the people, you would not allow these to be hung up with their rings; but it's with an intent you have done this. Demos, take knowledge of his guilty purpose; in this way you no longer can punish him at your pleasure. Note the swarm of young tanners, who really surround him, and close to them the sellers of honey and cheese; all these are at one with him. Very well! you have but to frown, to speak of ostracism and they will rush at night to these bucklers, take them down and seize our granaries. Demos Great gods! what! the bucklers retain their rings! Scoundrel! ah! too long have you had me for your dupe, cheated and played with me! Cleon But, dear sir, never you believe all he tells you. Oh! neve

d yet I'm not bringing them all. Sausage-Seller entering with an even larger package Ugh! The weight of them is squeezing the crap right out of me, and still I'm not bringing them all! Demos What are these? Cleon Oracles. Demos All these? Cleon Does that astonish you? Why, I have another whole boxful of them. Sausage-Seller And I the whole of my attic and two rooms besides. Demos Come, let us see, whose are these oracles? Cleon Mine are those of Bacis. Demos to the Sausage-Seller And whose are yours? Sausage-Seller without hesitating Glanis's, the elder brother of Bacis. Demos And of what do they speak? Cleon Of Athens and Pylos and you and me and everything. Demos And yours? Sausage-Seller Of Athens and lentils and Lacedaemonians and fresh mackerel and scoundrelly flour-sellers and you and me. Ah! ha! now watch him gnaw his own tool with chagrin! Demos Come, read them out to me and especially that one I like so much, which says that I shall become an eagle and soar among the clouds.

of men, it will be because I am the most disgusted. Cleon Putting down the bench for Demos Look! I am the first to bring you a seat. Sausage-Seller And I a table. He places his sausage-tray in front of Demos Cleon Wait, here is a cake kneaded of Pylos barley. Sausage-Seller Here are crusts, which the ivory hand of the goddess has hallowed. Demos Oh! Mighty Athena! How large are your fingers! Cleon This is pea-soup, as exquisite as it is fine; Pallas the victorious goddess at Pylos is the one wPylos is the one who crushed the peas herself. Sausage-Seller Oh, Demos! the goddess watches over you; she is stretching forth over your head ... a stew-pan full of broth. Demos And should we still be dwelling in this city without this protecting stew-pan? Cleon Here are some fish, given to you by her who is the terror of our foes. Sausage-Seller The daughter of the mightiest of the gods sends you this meat cooked in its own gravy, along with this dish of tripe and some paunch. Demos That's to thank me for the p

are some people coming to seek me. They are envoys, bearing sacks bulging with money. Cleon Hearing money mentioned Cleon turns his head, and the Sausage-Seller seizes the opportunity to snatch away the stewed hare. Where, where, I say? Sausage-Seller Bah! What's that to you? Will you not even now let the strangers alone? Dear Demos, do you see this stewed hare which I bring you? Cleon Ah! rascal! you have shamelessly robbed me. Sausage-Seller You have robbed too, you robbed the Laconians at Pylos. Demos Please tell me, how did you get the idea to filch it from him? Sausage-Seller The idea comes from the goddess; the theft is all my own. Cleon And I had taken such trouble to catch this hare and I was the one who had it cooked. Demos to Cleon Get you gone! My thanks are only for him who served it. Cleon Ah! wretch! you have beaten me in impudence! Sausage-Seller Well then, Demos, say now, who has treated you best, you and your stomach? Decide! Demos How shall I act here so that the spe
