|By Susarion (Sixth Century B.C.)|
| || Susarion, the father of Attic comedy, is assigned to the sixth century B.C. He survives only in one brief passage of doubtful authenticity, which however strikes a note most characteristic of his guild in every age.|
|HEAR, oh ye people! This Susarion saith,|
|Son of Philinus out of Megara:|
|We cannot without evil have a home:|
|For both to wed, and not to wed, are ill!|
