"What’s this banqueting, this crowd carousing here?
And what part do you play yourself? Some wedding-feast,
some festival? Hardly a potluck supper, I would say.
How obscenely they lounge and swagger here, look,
gorging in your house. Why, any man of sense
who chanced among them would be outraged,
seeing such behavior."

– Homer

The Odyssey, Book 1, lines 261-267. Athena asks Telemachus why there is a banquet taking place in his home, with crowds of people carousing and gorging themselves. She is commenting on the suitors’ outrageous and greedy behavior.
