3rd Paragraph


And so Dikaiopolis went up [to him] and asked him if he'd like to take them to Epidaurus. "Sure," he said, "I'm willing to take you there. But get on [board] quickly, for we're about to sail right away." But Dikaiopolis [asked], "for how much?" And the captain said "for 5 drachmas." But Dikaiopolis [haggled] "But you ask for too much. I am willing to give 2 drachmas." And he [the captain] replied "No; I ask for 4." And Dikaiopolis "Look - 3 drachmas; for I can't give more." And he [the captain] "All right (=so be it!); give me the money; and get on board quickly."
