μαρτύρομαι τυπτόμενος ὢν ἐπίσκοπος.PISTHETAERUS: Are you not going to clear out with your urns. 'Tis not to be believed; they send us inspectors before we have so much as paid sacrifice to the gods. A DEALER IN DECREES: "If the Nephelococcygian does wrong to the Athenian...." PISTHETAERUS: Now whatever are these cursed parchments? DEALER IN DECREES: I am a dealer in decrees, and I have come here to sell you the new laws. PISTHETAERUS: Which? DEALER IN DECREES: "The Nephelococcygians shall adopt the same weights, measures and decrees as the Olophyxians." PISTHETAERUS: And you shall soon be imitating the Ototyxians. (Beats him.) DEALER IN DECREES: Hullo! what are you doing? PISTHETAERUS: Now will you be off with your decrees? For I am going to let you see some severe ones. INSPECTOR (returning). I summon Pisthetaerus for outrage for the month of Munychion.

καλοῦμαι Πισθέταιρον ὕβρεως ἐς τὸν Μουνιχιῶνα μῆνα.PISTHETAERUS: Ha! my friend! are you still there? DEALER IN DECREES: "Should anyone drive away the magistrates and not receive them, according to the decree duly posted..." PISTHETAERUS: What! rascal! you are there too? INSPECTOR: Woe to you! I'll have you condemned to a fine of ten thousand drachmae. PISTHETAERUS: And I'll smash your urns. INSPECTOR: Do you recall that evening when you stooled against the column where the decrees are posted? PISTHETAERUS: Here! here! let him be seized. (The inspectors run off.) Well! don't you want to stop any longer? PRIEST: Let us get indoors as quick as possible; we will sacrifice the goat inside.

1.139.1. To return to the Lacedaemonians. The history of their first embassy, the injunctions which it conveyed, and the rejoinder which it provoked, concerning the expulsion of the accursed persons, have been related already. It was followed by a second, which ordered Athens to raise the siege of Potidaea, and to respect the independence of Aegina . Above all, it gave her most distinctly to understand that war might be prevented by the revocation of the Megara decree, excluding the Megarians from the use of Athenian harbors and of the market of Athens . 1.139.2. But Athens was not inclined either to revoke the decree, or to entertain their other proposals; she accused the Megarians of pushing their cultivation into the consecrated ground and the unenclosed land on the border, and of harboring her runaway slaves. 7.28.4. These causes, the great losses from Decelea, and the other heavy charges that fell upon them, produced their ficial embarrassment; and it was at this time that they imposed upon their subjects, instead of the tribute, the tax of a twentieth upon all imports and exports by sea, which they thought would bring them in more money; their expenditure being now not the same as at first, but having grown with the war while their revenues decayed.
