Aristophanes, The Rich Man, 1044


τάλαιν' ἐγὼ τῆς ὕβρεος ἧς ὑβρίζομαι.CHREMYLUS: It is a long time, then, since he saw you? OLD WOMAN: A long time? My god! he was with me yesterday. CHREMYLUS: It must be, then, that, unlike other people, he sees more clearly when he's drunk. OLD WOMAN: No, but I have always known him for an insolent fellow. YOUTH: Oh! divine Poseidon! Oh, ye gods of old age! what wrinkles she has on her face! OLD WOMAN: Oh! oh! keep your distance with that torch. CHREMYLUS: Yes, 'twould be as well; if a single spark were to reach her, she would catch alight like an old olive branch. YOUTH: I propose to have a game with you. OLD WOMAN: Where, naughty boy? YOUTH: Here. Take some nuts in your hand.

8. Thucydides, The History of The Peloponnesian War, 2.8.2, 2.21.3, 8.1.1 (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

2.8.2. Everywhere predictions were being recited and oracles being chanted by such persons as collect them, and this not only in the contending cities. 2.21.3. Knots were formed in the streets and engaged in hot discussion; for if the proposed sally was warmly recommended, it was also in some cases opposed. Oracles of the most various import were recited by the collectors, and found eager listeners in one or other of the disputants. Foremost in pressing for the sally were the Acharnians, as constituting no small part of the army of the state, and as it was their land that was being ravaged. In short, the whole city was in a most excited state; Pericles was the object of general indignation; his previous counsels were totally forgotten; he was abused for not leading out the army which he commanded, and was made responsible for the whole of the public suffering. 8.1.1. Such were the events in Sicily . When the news was brought to Athens, for a long while they disbelieved even the most respectable of the soldiers who had themselves escaped from the scene of action and clearly reported the matter, a destruction so complete not being thought credible. When the conviction was forced upon them, they were angry with the orators who had joined in promoting the expedition, just as if they had not themselves voted it, and were enraged also with the reciters of oracles and soothsayers, and all other omenmongers of the time who had encouraged them to hope that they should conquer Sicily .
