[264c] for I know you never actually saw the preserves of fish in the Nile and in the ponds of the Persian king. But perhaps you have noticed the like in fountain-pools.

Younger Socrates
Yes, I have often seen the fish in fountain-pools and have heard many tales of those foreign preserves.

And surely, even if you have not wandered over the plains of Thessaly, you have heard of goose-farms and crane-farms there and you believe that they exist.

Younger Socrates
Yes, of course.
