Classical Drama and Society
Cf. Aristophanes' Lysistrata 1-3: "Announce a debauch in honor of Bacchus, a spree for Pan, some footling fertility fieldday, and traffic stops—the streets are absolutely clogged with frantic females banging on tambourines. No urging for an orgy." Trans. D. Parker, in Four Plays by Aristophanes (Meridian 1964).
