Summary (From the publisher):

Aristophanes' Peace was performed at the City Dionysia in Athens in 421 B.C. as a decade-long war with Sparta seemed finally to be drawing to an end, and is one of only eleven extant plays by the greatest Old Comic poet.

In Peace, a rollicking attack on war-makers, the farmer-hero makes his famous trip to heaven on a dung-beetle to discuss the issues with Zeus.

Original title: η Ειρηνη (he Eirene; Latin: Pax)
