For my creditors always exact justice, and unless I do something they will always exact [justice].

So teach me one of your arguments.

Aren’t you thinking?

ΣΩΚ. οὐχί φροντίζεις

STR. I? [Yes] by Poseidon.

ΣΤΡΕΨ. ἐγώ; νή τὸν Ποσειδῶ.

43

SOC. And what did you think?

ΣΩΚ. καὶ δί δῆτ’ ἐφρόντισας;

44

STR. Whether I shall escape the bedbugs, which are biting me terribly.

ΣΤΡΕΨ. εἰ ἄρα λήσω τοὺς κόρεις, τοὺς δάκνοντας ἐμὲ δεινῶς.

60

STR. I shall take a witch woman and I shall steal the moon by night.

ΣΤΡΕΨ. λήψομαι γυναῖκα φαρμακίδα καὶ κλέψω ἐν νυκτί τὴν σελήνην.

61

SOC. What are you saying?

ΣΩΚ. (puzzled) τί φής;

62

You will steal the moon?

κλέψεις τὴν σελήνην;

63

Tell [me]—how is this useful?

εἰπὲ δή—πῶς τοῦτο χρήσιμον

64

ΣΤΡΕΨ. ὅπως; ἄκουε.

65

The creditors lend money by the month.

So I will steal the moon.

67

The moon will no longer rise.

ἡ δὲ σελήνη οὐκέτι ἀνατελεῖ.

68

How then will the creditors take their money?

πῶς οὖν τὰ χρήματα λήψονται οἱ χρῆσται;

69

SOC. To hell with you!

ΣΩΚ. (very annoyed) βαλλ’ εἰς κόρακας.

70

You are a peasant and ignorant.
