[13] As for Plato, there are certain passages in his works, more especially in the Timaeus,1 which are quite unintelligible to those who have not studied the theory of music. But why speak only of the philosophers, whose master, Socrates, did not blush to receive instruction in playing the lyre even when far advanced in years?

1 Tim. p. 47.
