οἴμοι πλακοῦντος τοῦ ν' τετράδι πεπεμμένου.HERMES: Ah! the lovely cake they used to knead for me on the fourth of the month! CARIO: You recall it vainly; your regrets are useless! there'll be no more cake. HERMES: Ah! the ham I was wont to devour! CARIO: Well then! make use of your legs and hop on one leg upon the wine-skin, to while away the time. HERMES: Oh! the grilled entrails I used to swallow down! CARIO: Your own have got the colic, methinks. HERMES: Oh! the delicious tipple, half wine, half water! CARIO: Here, swallow that and be off. (He discharges a fart.) HERMES: Would you do a friend a service? CARIO: Willingly, if I can. HERMES: Give me some well-baked bread and a big hunk of the victims they are sacrificing in your house. CARIO: That would be stealing. HERMES: Do you forget, then, how I used to take care he knew nothing about it when you were stealing something from your master? CARIO: Because I used to share it with you, you rogue; some cake or other always came your way. HERMES: Which afterwards you ate up all by yourself.

οὐ γὰρ μετεῖχες τὰς ἴσας πληγὰς ἐμοίCARIO: But then you did not share the blows when I was caught. HERMES: Forget past injuries, now you have taken Phyle. Ah! how I should like to live with you! Take pity and receive me. CARIO: You would leave the gods to stop here? HERMES: One is much better off among you. CARIO: What! you would desert! Do you think that is honest? HERMES: "Where I live well, there is my country." CARIO: But how could we employ you here? HERMES: Place me near the door; I am the watchman god and would shift off the robbers. CARIO: Shift off! Ah! but we have no love for shifts. HERMES: Entrust me with business dealings. CARIO: But we are rich; why should we keep a haggling Hermes? HERMES: Let me intrigue for you [Dolios]. CARIO: No, no, intrigues are forbidden; we believe in good faith. HERMES: I will work for you as a guide. CARIO: But the god sees clearly now, so we no longer want a guide.

ἐναγώνιος τοίνυν ἔσομαι. τί δῆτ' ἐρεῖς;HERMES: Well then, I will preside over the games. Ah! what can you object to in that? Nothing is fitter for Plutus than to give scenic and gymnastic games. CARIO: How useful 'tis to have so many names! Here you have found the means of earning your bread. I don't wonder the jurymen so eagerly try to get entered for many tribunals. HERMES: So then, you admit me on these terms. CARIO: Go and wash the entrails of the victims at the well, so that you may show yourself serviceable at once. A PRIEST OF ZEUS: Can anyone direct me where Chremylus is?

9. 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 .
