The worlds idol, Plutus a comedy by Aristophanes( Book )

The story of 'Plutus' concerns Chremylus, a poor but just man, who accompanied by his body-servant Cario, consults the Delphic Oracle concerning his son, whether he ought not to be instructed in injustice and knavery and the other arts whereby worldly men acquire riches. By way of answer the god only tells him that he is to follow whomsoever he first meets upon leaving the temple, who proves to be a blind and ragged old man
The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

37 editions published between 1896 and 1968 in 6 languages and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play

Knights by Aristophanes( Book )

34 editions published between 1900 and 1968 in 5 languages and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Knights' is a satire on the social and political life of classical Athens during the Peloponnesian War, focusing on Paphlagonian, a comic monstrosity responsible for almost everything that's wrong with the world, and under the guise of whom Aristophanes was targeting the pro-war populist Cleon, who had previously brought a slander prosecution against the playwright. The play relies heavily on allegory and won first prize at the Lenaia festival when it was produced in 424 BC
