The memory of Myson early became obscure, and Plato alone numbers him with the seven, although Hipponax (Frag. 45 Bgk.) said καὶ Μύσων, ὃν ὡπόλλων ἀνεῖπεν ἀνδρῶν σωφρονέστατον πάντων. It was not certainly known whether he was a native of Etis in Crete, or Chenae on Mt. Oeta, or Chen in Laconia. That Plato did not regard him as a Lacedaemonian, but as a Malian from Chenae, is clear from the following Λακεδαιμόνιος.

τοιαύτην: defined by ῥήματα... εἰρημένα.
