ἐγὼ δὲ σισύραν ᾠόμην Θυμαιτίδα.PHILOCLEON: Ah! I thought it was a wraprascal like those made at Thymaetis. BDELYCLEON: Pray, how should you know such garments? 'Tis only at Sardis you could have seen them, and you have never been there. PHILOCLEON: I' faith, no! but it seems to me exactly like the mantle Morychus sports. BDELYCLEON: Not at all; I tell you they are woven at Ecbatana. PHILOCLEON: What! are there woollen ox-guts then at Ecbatana? BDELYCLEON: Whatever are you talking about? These are woven by the Barbarians at great cost. I am certain this pelisse has consumed more than a talent of wool. PHILOCLEON: It should be called wool-waster then instead of pelisse. BDELYCLEON: Come, father, just hold still for a moment and put it on. PHILOCLEON: Oh! horrors! what a waft of heat the hussy wafts up my nose! BDELYCLEON: Will you have done with this fooling?

οὐκ ἀναβαλεῖ; μὰ Δί' οὐκ ἔγωγ'. ἀλλ' ὦγαθέPHILOCLEON: No, by Zeus! if need be, I prefer you should put me in the oven. BDELYCLEON: Come! I will put it round you. There! PHILOCLEON: At all events, bring out a crook. BDELYCLEON: Why, whatever for? PHILOCLEON: To drag me out of it before I am quite melted. BDELYCLEON: Now take off those wretched clogs and put on these nice Laconian slippers. PHILOCLEON: I put on odious slippers made by our foes! Never! BDELYCLEON: Come! put your foot in and push hard. Quick! PHILOCLEON: 'Tis ill done of you. You want me to put my foot on Laconian ground. BDELYCLEON: Now the other.

φέρε καὶ τὸν ἕτερον. μηδαμῶς τοῦτόν γ', ἐπεὶPHILOCLEON: Ah! no, not that one; one of its toes holds the Laconians in horror. BDELYCLEON: Positively you must. PHILOCLEON: Alas! alas! Then I shall have no chilblains in my old age. BDELYCLEON: Now, hurry up and get them on; and now imitate the easy effeminate gait of the rich. See, like this. PHILOCLEON: There!... Look at my get-up and tell me which rich man I most resemble in my walk. BDELYCLEON: Why, you look like a garlic plaster on a boil. PHILOCLEON: Ah! I am longing to swagger and sway my rump about. BDELYCLEON: Now, will you know how to talk gravely with well-informed men of good class? PHILOCLEON: Undoubtedly. BDELYCLEON: What will you say to them?

Did those of us who are assigned to these matters not give good directions when we told your father to educate you in music and gymnastics?
10. Plato, Menexenus, None (5th cent. BCE - 4th cent. BCE)

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;
