Aristophanes: Lysistrata, v.1, 9 April 2008.

An illustrated play. The illustrations are by Norman Lindsay and the introduction and translation is by Jack Lindsay.

First performed in 411 BCE, this is a comedy.
Lysistrata, an Athenian woman, is fed up with the Peloponnesian war. So she summons a council of women from all the Greek states and persuades them to go on a sex strike until peace is agreed.

Found on PG. The file is big because of the pictures.

This is a wonderful play! I've read the Greek original - extremely rude and very funny .

I too had to read it when I was learning Greek, many years ago (It's amazing how quickly one can forget it). I remember causing a small riot when translating a passage from the Lysistrata in class. The verb Bineo was used. The dictionary said that it was a colloquial verb for sex, so I translated it with an anglo-saxon colloquialism.
After that, the teacher moved us to Demosthenes Against Neaira, for weeks.

Lidell and Scott (the "standard" Greek dictionary, for those unfamiliar with it) is very "Victorian" and coy about verbs like that . Your translation was spot on, I'd say.
