Aristophanes [writes]: "they are fleeing the miltos-soaked rope." Since the Athenians were idle as regards the meetings, two attendants used to stretch out a miltos-soaked rope through the agora and chase the mob into the assembly, as Plato the comic poet says. And those who were dyed had to pay a fine.
Greek Original:
Μεμιλτωμένον: Ἀριστοφάνης: τὸ σχοινίον φεύγουσι τὸ μεμιλτωμένον. ἐπεὶ ὀκνηρῶς εἶχον οἱ Ἀθηναῖοι πρὸς τὰς συνόδους, εἰώθασιν ὑπηρέται β# μεμιλτωμένον σχοινίον ἐκτείνοντες διὰ τῆς ἀγορᾶς διώκειν τὸν ὄχλον εἰς τὴν ἐκκλησίαν, ὥς φησι Πλάτων ὁ κωμικός. ὅσοι δὲ ἐχρίοντο, ἐξέτινον ζημίαν.
