I, gave it her? PENICULUS You, you, I say. Do you wish for an owlWish for an owl: "Tu, tu." He alludes to the note of the owl which to the Romans would seem to say "tu, tu" "you you." to be brought here, to say "you, you," continually to you? For we are now quite tired of it. MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. By Jupiter and all the Gods, I swear, wife (and isn't that enough for you?), that I did not give it. PENICULUS Aye, and I, by all the powers, that we are telling no untruth.

What's there to be for me, who have given you this assistance? THE WIFE OF MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. Your assistance shall be repaid, when anything shall be purloined from your house. The WIFE goes into the house. PENICULUS Then, by my troth, that really will never be; for nothing have I at home to lose. May the Gods confound you, both husband and wife. I'll make haste to the Forum, for I see clearly that I've quite fallen out with this family. (Exit.) MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. My wife thinks that she does me an injury when she shuts me out of doors; as though I hadn't another better place to be admitted into. If I displease you, I must endure it; I shall please Erotium here, who

s. MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. to himself. How we do practise a custom here that is very foolish and extremely troublesome, and how even those who are the most worthy and greatMost worthy and great: "Optumi maximi." This was properly an epithet of Jupiter, and is, perhaps, satirically applied to the "little Gods," the great men of Rome. In the previous line he uses "morus," the Greek word mwro/s, signifying "foolish," on account of its resemblance to the word "mores," "manner" or "custom." do fol nodding to me not to speak. MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. On my word, I really never did nod to you, or wink in any way. PENICULUS Nothing is more audacious than this man, who resolutely denies those things which you see. MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. By Jupiter and all the Gods, I swear, wife, that I did not nod to him; isn't that enough for you? PENICULUS She now believes you about that matter; go back again there. MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. Go back where? PENICULUS Why, to the embroiderer, as I suppos

I'll make haste to the Forum, for I see clearly that I've quite fallen out with this family. (Exit.) MENAECHMUS of Epidamnus. My wife thinks that she does me an injury when she shuts me out of doors; as though I hadn't another better place to be admitted into. If I displease you, I must endure it; I shall please Erotium here, who won't be shutting me out of her house, but will be shutting me up in her house rather. Now I'll go; I'll beg her to give me back the mantle that I gave her a while since. I'll purchase another for her--a better one. Hallo! is any one the porter here? Knocks at EROTIUM'S door. Open here, and some one of you call Erotium before the door.
