Aristophanes, Wasps, 1122


οὔτοι ποτὲ ζῶν τοῦτον ἀποδυθήσομαιPHILOCLEON: As long as I live, I will never give up this cloak; 'tis the one I wore in that battle when Boreas delivered us from such fierce attacks, BDELYCLEON: You do not know what is good for you. PHILOCLEON: Ah! I know not how to use fine clothing! T'other day, when cramming myself with fried fish, I dropped so many grease spots that I had to pay three obols to the cleaner. BDELYCLEON: At least have a try, since you have once for all handed the care for your well-being over to me. PHILOCLEON: Very well then! what must I do? BDELYCLEON: Take off your cloak, and put on this tunic in its stead. PHILOCLEON: 'Twas well worth while to beget and bring up children, so that this one should now wish to choke me. BDELYCLEON: Come, take this tunic and put it on without so much talk. PHILOCLEON: Great gods! what sort of a cursed garment is this? BDELYCLEON: Some call it a pelisse, others a Persian cloak.

236a. for these are my two instructors, the one in music, the other in rhetoric. So it is not surprising that a man who is trained like me should be clever at speaking. But even a man less well taught than I, who had learnt his music from Lamprus and his rhetoric from Antiphon the Rhamnusian, —even such a one, I say, could none the less win credit by praising Athenians before an Athenian audience. Men. What, then, would you have to say, if you were required to speak? Soc. Nothing, perhaps, myself of my own invention;
