1212
Aristophanes, Wasps, 1292


ἰὼ χελῶναι μακάριαι τοῦ δέρματοςXANTHIAS: Oh! tortoises! happy to have so hard a skin, thrice happy to carry this roof that protects your backs! Oh! creatures full of sense! what a happy thought to cover your bodies with this shell, which shields it from blows! As for me, I can no longer move; the stick has so belaboured my body. CHORUS: Eh, what's the matter, child? for, old as he may be, one has the right to call anyone a child who has let himself be beaten.
