And you have been so careless about committing inconsistencies that you say Busiris emulated the fame of Aeolus and Orpheus, yet you do not show that any of his pursuits was identical with theirs. What, can we compare his deeds with the reported exploits of Aeolus? But Aeolus restored to their native lands strangers who were cast on his shores,1 whereas Busiris, if we are to give credence to your account, sacrificed and ate them!

1 Cf. Hom. Od. 10.17-27, where Aeolus furnishes escort for Odysseus.
