Dionysus (from The Frogs by Aristophanes, c. 450-388 BCE)

“Can any of you guys tell me where Pluto happens to dwell? We’re Visiting firemen. Never been here before.”

  • This line, written by Aristophanes, was spoken by the godly character, Dionysus, while he was visiting the realm of the dead, ruled by Hades (or Pluto to the Romans). The quote comes from approximately line 435 of Aristophanes’ play, The Frogs.
