The Debtor And His Sow

A Man of Athens fell into debt and was pressed for the money by his creditor; but he had no means of paying at the time, so he begged for delay.
      
      But the creditor refused and said he must pay at once. Then the Debtor fetched a Sow - the only one he had - and took her to market to offer her for sale. It happened that his creditor was there too.
      
      Presently a buyer came along and asked if the Sow produced good litters.
      
      "Yes," said the Debtor, "very fine ones; and the remarkable thing is that she produces females at the Mysteries and males at the Panathenea."
      
      (Festivals these were: and the Athenians always sacrifice a sow at one, and a boar at the other; while at the Dionysia they sacrifice a kid.)
      
      At that the creditor, who was standing by, put in, "Don't be surprised, sir; why, still better, at the Dionysia this Sow has kids!"
