[63] And just recently, you remember, you introduced the stranger from Heraclea1 to me, after arousing my keen interest in him by your commendations. For this I am indeed grateful to you; for I look upon him as endowed with a truly noble nature. And did you not laud Aeschylus the Phleiasian2 to me and me to him until you brought us to such a pass that in mutual yearning, excited by your words, we went coursing like hounds to find each other?

1 Zeuxippus, the painter. Cf. Plato, Protag. 318 B, C.

2 Nothing further seems to be known of this man.
