by the names that are naturally right. Do you not think so?HermogenesOf course I know that if they call things, they call them rightly. But what are these instances to which you refer?SocratesDo you not know that he says about the river in Troy which had the single combat with Hephaestus,Hom. Il. 21.342-380whom the gods call Xanthus, but men call ScamanderHom. Il. 20.74?HermogenesOh yes.
Plato, Cratylus, section 392a (search)
SocratesWell, do you not think this is a grand thing to know, that the name of that river is rightly Xanthus, rather than Scamander? Or, if you like, do you think it is a slight thing to learn about the bird which he says gods call chalcis, but men call cymindis,Hom. Il. 14.291 that it is much more correct for the same bird to be called chalcis than cymindis? Or to learn that the hill men call Batieia is called by the gods Myrina's tomb,Hom. Il. 2.813 f and many other such statements by Homer and other poets?
