I have made my remarks on this stage of education as brief as possible, making no attempt to say everything, (for the theme is infinite), but confining myself to the most necessary points. I will now proceed briefly to discuss the remaining arts in which I think boys ought to be instructed before being handed over to the teacher of rhetoric: for it [p. 161] is by such studies that the course of education described by the Greeks as ἐγκύκλικος παιδεία or general education will be brought to its full completion.
