In chapter 1, the Lenaion was indicated as the site on which comedies were performed for the contests of the Lenaia alone. A passage was also quoted which polemically emphasizes the fact that the audience of Acharnians was composed exclusively of Athenians, and that ‘the contest takes place in the Lenaion’: further evidence is provided in section 1 of chapter 4 on Knights.
