Philocleon Can it be I am treated thus? Oh! what is it you are saying? You stir me to the bottom of my heart! I am all ears! I cannot express what I feel. Bdelycleon Consider then; you might be rich, both you and all the others; I know not why you let yourself be fooled by these folk who call themselves the people's friends. A myriad of towns obey you, from the Euxine to Sardis. What do you gain thereby? Nothing but this miserable pay, and even that is like the oil with which the flock of wool is impregnated and is doled to you drop by drop, just enough to keep you from dying of hunger.

Philocleon Of course not, but it seems to me exactly like the mantle Morychus sports. Bdelycleon Not at all; I tell you they are woven at Ecbatana. Philocleon What! are there woollen ox-guts then at Ecbatana? Bdelycleon Whatever are you talking about? These are woven by the barbarians at great cost. I am certain this pelisse has consumed more than a talent of wool. Philocleon It should be called wool-waster then instead of pelis
