[4] And so it befell, as the story goes, that when the verses composed by Aeschylus upon Amphiaraus were recited in the theater:—
He wishes not to seem, but rather just to be,
And reap a harvest from deep furrows in a mind
From which there spring up honorable counselings,
1 all the spectators turned their eyes on Aristides, feeling that he, above all men, was possessed of such excellence.
