Text

START: Bring the Spartans to me first of all. Don’t be rough or brusque; handle them gently, not in the brutal way men lay hold on us, but the way a lady should--very civilised.
[... …]
END: They fought for you alone upon that day
And set you free, removed your servile cloak
And clothed you with Democracy again.

Aristophanes; Alan H. Sommerstein, Lysistrata/The Acharnians/The Clouds, Penguin Classics, 1973, pp.227-228.
