[107a]

Socrates
Then tell me, will it be when the Athenians are taking advice how they are to do their writing correctly that you are to stand up and advise them?

Alcibiades
Upon my word, not I.

Socrates
Well, about strokes on the lyre?

Alcibiades
Not at all.

Socrates
Nor in fact are they accustomed to deliberate on throws in wrestling either at the Assembly.

Alcibiades
No, to be sure.

Socrates
Then what will be the subject of the advice? For I presume it will not be about building.

Alcibiades
No, indeed.
