[284a]

Socrates
And in well-governed states virtue is most highly honored.

Hippias
Certainly.

Socrates
And you know best of all men how to transmit that to another.

Hippias
Much best, Socrates.

Socrates
Well, he who knows best how to transmit horsemanship would be most honored in Thessaly of all parts of Greece and would receive most money—and anywhere else where horsemanship is a serious interest, would he not?

Hippias
Very likely.

Socrates
Then will not he who is able to transmit the doctrines that are of most value
