Calonice

Calonice (also called Cleonice) is a friend of Lysistrata, but she is at first reluctant to make the sacrifices that Lysistrata asks. Calonice is earthy and funny, especially in voicing her lust for her husband. She becomes one of Lysistrata's strongest supporters, but not without having first been browbeaten by Lysistrata.

Child

Cinesias brings his infant son to the siege in an attempt to convince Myrrhine to return home.

Chorus of Old Men

The chorus of old men leads an assault on the Acropolis. They try to burn the women out by setting fire to the base of the building. When action fails them, the old men engage in a war of words with the old women, who have seized the treasury. The old men are offended by the women's desire to control the treasury, but they are ineffective against the strength of the women.
