[189b] or one who so far has no reputation, or anything of that sort, I care not a jot. I therefore invite you, Socrates, both to teach and to refute me as much as you please, and to learn too what I on my part know; such is the position you hold in my eyes since that day on which you came through the same danger with me,1 and gave a proof of your own valour which is to be expected of anyone who hopes to justify his good name. So say whatever you like, leaving out of account

1 This instance of Socrates' intrepidity (at Delium cf. above, 181b) is more fully described by Alcibiades in Plat. Sym. 221.
