158. A Kymaean is trying to sell a horse. Somebody comes
and starts to check the horse’s teeth. The Kymaean says to
him, ‘Why are you checking its teeth? I just wish it could trot
as well as it eats!’
159. A Kymaean makes a big threshing floor, stands at one
edge of it, and calls to his wife on the opposite side: ‘Can
you see me?’ ‘Only just barely,’ she calls back. ‘O.K., one
of these days, I’ll make a threshing floor so big that not only
will I not be able to see you, but you’ll not be able to see me,
either.’
160. A Kymaean goes to see a friend of his. He’s standing
in front of the friend’s house, calling his name, when another
voice answers, “Shout louder, so he can hear!” So the
Kymaean shouts, “Hey, Louder!”
161. A thief from Kyme, targeting the house of a loan shark,
and hoping to steal the biggest sums, picks out the heaviest
sheets of paper.
162. When the Kymaeans were walling up their city, one of
the citizens, Lollianus by name, used his own money to build
sections connecting three of the towers. This so offended
the Kymeaeans that they all agreed that no one but Lollianus
himself should defend that part of the wall.
