Aristophanes, Knights, 274-283


καὶ κέκραγας, ὥσπερ ἀεὶ τὴν πόλιν καταστρέφει;CHORUS: What shouts! but 'tis this very bawling that incessantly upsets the city! SAUSAGE-SELLER: I can shout too — and so loud that you will flee with fear. CHORUS: If you shout louder than he does, I will strike up the triumphal hymn; if you surpass him in impudence, the cake is ours. CLEON: I denounce this fellow; he has had tasty stews exported from Athens for the Spartan fleet. SAUSAGE-SELLER: And I denounce him, who runs into the Prytaneum with empty belly and comes out with it full. DEMOSTHENES: And by Zeus! he carries off bread, meat, and fish, which is forbidden. Pericles himself never had this right. CLEON: You are travelling the right road to get killed. SAUSAGE-SELLER: I'll bawl three times as loud as you. CLEON: I will deafen you with my yells. SAUSAGE-SELLER: And I you with my bellowing.
