Plato to Dionysius, Tyrant of Syracuse, wishes well-doing.

Let this greeting not only commence my letter but serve at the same time as a token that it is from me.1 Once when you were feasting the Locrian youths and were seated at a distance from me, you got up and came over to me and in a friendly spirit made some remark

1 For the significance of the greeting “well-doing” see Plat. L. 3 ad init.; cf. Plat. L. 13.363b below.
