Aristophanes, Acharnians 1089-1093 (tr. Benjamin Bickley Rogers):
For all things else are ready and prepared,
The couches, tables, sofa-cushions, rugs,
Wreaths, sweetmeats, myrrh, the harlotry are there,
Whole-meal cakes, cheese-cakes, sesame-, honey-cakes,
And dancing-girls, Harmodius' dearest ones.

τὰ δ᾽ ἄλλα πάντ᾽ ἐστὶν παρεσκευασμένα,
κλῖναι, τράπεζαι, προσκεφάλαια, στρώματα        1090
στέφανοι, μύρον, τραγήμαθ᾽, αἱ πόρναι πάρα,
ἄμυλοι, πλακοῦντες, σησαμοῦντες, ἴτρια,
ὀρχηστρίδες, τὰ φίλταθ᾽ Ἁρμοδίου, καλαί.
