Pylos (Greece) (search for this): card 691
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
Corinth (Greece) (search for this): card 595
Leader of Second Semi-Chorus We will sing likewise the exploits of our steeds! they are worthy of our praises; in what invasions, what fights have I not seen them helping us! But especially admirable were they, when they bravely leapt upon the galleys, taking nothing with them but a coarse wine, some cloves of garlic and onions; despite this, they nevertheless seized the sweeps just like men, curved their backs over the thwarts and shouted, “Hippapai! Give way! Come, all pull together! Come, come! How! Samphoras! Are you not rowing?” They rushed down upon the coast of Corinth, and the youngesthollowed out beds in the sand with their hoofs or went to fetch coverings; instead of luzern, they had no food but crabs, which they caught on the strand and even in the sea; so that Theorus causes a Corinthian crab to say, “'Tis a cruel fate, oh Poseidon neither my deep hiding-places, whether on land or at sea, can help me to escape the Kni
Athens (Greece) (search for this): card 581
Second Semi-Chorus singing Oh! Pallas, guardian of Athens, you, who reign over the most pious city, the most powerful, the richest in warriors and in poets, hasten to my call, bringing in your train our faithful ally in all our expeditions and combats, Victory, who smiles on our choruses and fights with us against our rivals. Oh! goddess! manifest yourself to our sight; this day more than ever we deserve that you should ensure our triumph.
Athens (Greece) (search for this): card 565
Leader of First Semi-Chorus Let us sing the glory of our forefathers; ever victors, both on land and sea, they merit that Athens, rendered famous by these, her worthy sons, should write their deeds upon the sacred peplus. As soon as they saw the enemy, they at once sprang at him without ever counting his strength. Should one of them fall in the conflict he would shake off the dust, deny his mishap and begin the struggle anew. Not one of these generals of old time would have asked Cleaenetus to dust, deny his mishap and begin the struggle anew. Not one of these generals of old time would have asked Cleaenetus to be fed at the cost of the State; but our present men refuse to fight, unless they get the honors of the Prytaneum and precedence in their seats. As for us, we place our valor gratuitously at the service of Athens and of her gods; our only hope is that, should peace ever put a term to our toils, you will not grudge us our long, scented hair nor our delicate care for our toilet.
Boeotia (Greece) (search for this): card 461
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
Argos (Greece) (search for this): card 461
Cleon Recovering his wits Ah! by Demeter! I was not ignorant of this plot and these machinations that were being forged and nailed and put together against me. Chorus to the Sausage-Seller Look out, look out! Come, outfence him with some wheelwright slang. Sausage-Seller His tricks at Argos do not escape me. Under pretence of forming an alliance with the Argives, he is hatching a plot with the Lacedaemonians there; and I know why the bellows are blowing and the metal that 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.

hild will get on; he has the mettle that makes a statesman.” Leader of the Chorus He argued rightly; to steal, perjure yourself and make your arse receptive are three essentials for climbing high. Cleon I will stop your insolence, or rather the insolence of both of you. I will throw myself upon you like a terrible hurricane ravaging both land and sea at the will of its fury. Sausage-Seller Then I will gather up my sausages and entrust myself to the kindly waves of fortune so as to make you all the more enraged. Demosthenes And I will watch in the bilges in case the boat should make water. Cleon No, by Demeter! I swear, it will not be with impunity that you have thieved so many talents from the Athenians. Demosthenes to the Sausage-Seller Oh! oh! reef your sail a bit! Here is a Northeaster blowing calumniously. Sausage-Seller I know that you got ten talents out of Potidaea. Cleon Wait! I will give you one; but keep it dark! Leader of the Chorus aside Hah! that will please him mightil

Chorus singing Thus then at Athens we have something more fiery than fire, more impudent than impudence itself! 'Tis a grave matter; come, we will push and jostle him without mercy. There, you grip him tightly under the arms; if he gives way at the onset, you will find him nothing but a craven; I know my man.
Pylos (Greece) (search for this): card 335
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
