C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.

Women
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!
