[13a] but there is one little point about which I still want information, for I do not yet understand what you mean by “attention.” I don't suppose you mean the same kind of attention to the gods which is paid to other things. We say, for example, that not everyone knows how to attend to horses, but only he who is skilled in horsemanship, do we not?

Euthyphro
Certainly.

Socrates
Then horsemanship is the art of attending to horses?

Euthyphro
Yes.

Socrates
And not everyone knows how to attend to dogs, but only the huntsman?

Euthyphro
That is so.

Socrates
Then the huntsman's art is the art of attending to dogs?
