Also the air, in Aristophanes in Birds: "you shall not grant passage to the smell of the [sc. burning sacrificial] thighs through your foreign city and the space."[1]

Greek Original:
Χάος: καὶ ὁ ἀήρ, παρ' Ἀριστοφάνει ἐν Ὄρνισι: διὰ τῆς πόλεως τῆς ἀλλοτρίας καὶ τοῦ χάους τῶν μηρίων τὴν κνίσσαν οὐ διαφρήσετε. καὶ Χάους ἀρχαιότερος καὶ Κρονίων, ἐπὶ τῶν πάνυ παλαιῶν. καὶ Ἴβυκος: ποτᾶται δ' ἐν ἀλλοτρίῳ χάει. καὶ αὖθις: ὁ δὲ φλυαρεῖ καὶ μάτην ἡμῶν λῆρον καταχεῖ, τοῦ χάους ἀρχαιότερον καὶ Κρονίων ἀπόζοντα.
