Attica (Greece) (search for this): card 303
Chorus singing Oh! you scoundrel! you impudent bawler! everything is filled with your daring, all Attica, the Assembly, the Treasury, the decrees, the tribunals. As a furious torrent you have overthrown our city; your outcries have deafened Athens and, posted upon a high rock, you have lain in wait for the tribute moneys as the fisherman does for the tunny-fish.

at is on the anvil; it's the question of the prisoners. Chorus Well done! Forge on, if he be a wheelwright. Sausage-Seller And there are men at Sparta who are hammering the iron with you; but neither gold nor silver nor prayers nor anything else shall impede my denouncing your trickery to the Athenians. Cleon As for me, I hasten to the Senate to reveal your plotting, your nightly gatherings in the city, your trafficking with the Medes and with the Great King, and all you are foraging for in Boeotia. Sausage-Seller What price then is paid for forage by Boeotians? Cleon Oh! by Heracles! I will tan your hide. He departs. Chorus Come, if you have both wit and heart, now is the time to show it, as on the day when you hid the meat in your crotch, as you say. Hasten to the Senate, for he will rush there like a tornado to calumniate us all and give vent to his fearful bellowings. Sausage-Seller I am going, but first I must rid myself of my tripe and my knives; I will leave them here. Demosthe

bons; the envoys who come to propose a truce you drive from the city with kicks in their arses. Cleon The purpose of this is that Demos may rule over all the Greeks; for the oracles predict that, if he is patient, he must one day sit as judge in Arcadia at five obols per day. Meanwhile, I will nourish him, look after him and, above all, I will ensure to him his three obols. Sausage-Seller No, little you care for his reigning in Arcadia, it's to pillage and impose on the allies at will that you Arcadia, it's to pillage and impose on the allies at will that you reckon; you wish the war to conceal your rogueries as in a mist, that Demos may see nothing of them, and harassed by cares, may only depend on yourself for his bread. But if ever peace is restored to him, if ever he returns to his lands to comfort himself once more with good cakes, to greet his cherished olives, he will know the blessings you have kept him out of, even though paying him a salary; and, filled with hatred and rage, he will rise, burning with desire to vote against you. You know t
Olympus (Greece) (search for this): card 1
the background is the house of Demos. Oh! alas! alas! Oh! woe! oh! woe! Miserable Paphlagonian! may the gods destroy both him and his cursed advice! Since that evil day when this new slave entered the house he has never ceased belaboring us with blows. Nicias May the plague seize him, the arch-fiend —him and his lying tales! Demosthenes Hah! my poor fellow, what is your condition? Nicias Very wretched, just like your own. Demosthenes Then come, let us sing a duet of groans in the style of Olympus. Demosthenes and Nicias Boo, hoo! boo, hoo! boo, hoo! boo, hoo! boo, hoo! boo, hoo!! Demosthenes Bah! it's lost labour to weep! Enough of groaning! Let us consider how to save our pelts. Nicias But how to do it! Can you suggest anything? Demosthenes No, you begin. Nicias I cede you the honor. Demosthenes By Apollo! no, not I Nicias in tragic style “Ah! would you but tell me what I should tell you!” Demosthenes Come, have courage! Speak, and then I will say what I think. Nicias I dare not. H<
urther oracle, by which Apollo puts you on your guard against the snares of the greedy fist. Demos Of what greedy fist? Sausage-Seller The god in this oracle very clearly points to the hand of Cleon, who incessantly holds his out, saying, “Fill it.” Cleon That's a lie! Phoebus means the hand of Diopeithes. But here I have a winged oracle, which promises you shall become an eagle and rule over all the earth. Sausage-Seller I have one, which says that you shall be King of the Earth and of the Red Sea too, and that you shall administer justice in Ecbatana, eating fine rich stews the while. Cleon I have seen Athena in a dream, pouring out full vials of riches and health over the people. Sausage-Seller I too have seen the goddess, descending from the Acropolis with an owl perched upon her helmet; on your head she was pouring out ambrosia, on that of Cleon garlic pickle. Demos Truly Glanis is the wisest of men. I shall yield myself to you; guide me in my old age and educate me anew. Cleon A
