Aristophanes, The Women Celebrating The Thesmophoria, 224


οὗτος σὺ ποῖ θεῖς; ἐς τὸ τῶν σεμνῶνMNESILOCHUS: To the shrine of the Eumenides. No, by Demeter I won't let myself be gashed like that. EURIPIDES: But you will get laughed at, with your face half-shaven like that. MNESILOCHUS: Little care I: EURIPIDES: In the gods' names, don't leave me in the lurch. Come here. MNESILOCHUS: Oh! by the gods! (Resumes his seat.) EURIPIDES: Keep still and hold up your head. Why do you want to fidget about like this? MNESILOCHUS: Mu, mu. EURIPIDES: Well! why, mu, mu? There! 'tis done and well done too! MNESILOCHUS Ah! great god! It makes me feel quite light. EURIPIDES: Don't worry yourself; you look charming. Do you want to see yourself? MNESILOCHUS: Aye, that I do; hand the mirror here. EURIPIDES: Do you see yourself? MNESILOCHUS: But this is not I, it is Clisthenes! EURIPIDES: Stand up; I am now going to remove your hair. Bend down. MNESILOCHUS: Alas! alas! they are going to grill me like a pig. EURIPIDES: Come now, a torch or a lamp! Bend down and take care of the tender end of your tail! MNESILOCHUS: Aye, aye! but I'm afire! oh! oh! Water, water, neighbour, or my rump will be alight! EURIPIDES: Keep up your courage! MNESILOCHUS: Keep my courage, when I'm being burnt up? EURIPIDES: Come, cease your whining, the worst is over.
