Aristophanes, Peace, 929-934
NaN


ὀί; ναὶ μὰ Δί'. ἀλλὰ τοῦτό γ' ἔστ' ̓ΙωνικὸνTRYGAEUS: A sheep? CHORUS: Yes. TRYGAEUS: But you must give the word the Ionic form. CHORUS: Purposely. So that if anyone in the assembly says, "We must go to war," all may start bleating in alarm, "Oi, oi." TRYGAEUS: A brilliant idea. CHORUS: And we shall all be lambs one toward the other, yea, and milder still toward the allies. TRYGAEUS: Then go for the sheep and haste to bring it back with you; I will prepare the altar for the sacrifice. CHORUS: How everything succeeds to our wish, when the gods are willing and Fortune favours us! how opportunely everything falls out. TRYGAEUS: Nothing could be truer, for look! here stands the altar all ready at my door. CHORUS: Hurry, hurry, for the winds are fickle; make haste, while the divine will is set on stopping this cruel war and is showering on us the most striking benefits.
