Aristophanes, Birds 764-5, also quoted, but less accurately, at phi 135 and phi 869. There are multiple puns here involving birds (on which see Dunbar (below) 472-3) but the underlying point is that severe Athenian citizenship qualifications will not apply in Cloudcuckootown.
On Exekestides, see epsilon 1717.
Aristophanes, Birds, edited with introduction and commentary by Nan Dunbar (Oxford 1995)
