Aristophanes [writes]: "he would not even have accepted Achaia".[2] They used to call her this from the beat made by the cymbals and drums during the examination of the girl; or from her distress [a)/xos] about her daughter; or from the sound [h)=xos] which they used to produce near the bridge as she departed for Athens. The sense, however, [is that] he would not even have endured Achaia herself.
