Isocrates, Panathenaicus (ed. George Norlin), section 18 (search)
For some of my friends met me and related to me how, as they were sitting together in the Lyceum,A sacred enclosure on the right bank of the Ilissus, dedicated to Apollo—a gymnasium and exercise ground, but was also frequented by philosophers. Here Aristotle and his pupils were wont to gather. three or four of the sophists of no repute— men who claim to know everything and are prompt to show their presence everywhere—were discussing the poets, especially the poetry of Hesiod and Homer, saying nothing original about them, but merely chanting their verses and repeating from memory the cleverest things which certain others had said about them in the past.Other sophists made much of the study and elucidation of the poets, but there is no evidence that Isocrates did.
