In many places Socrates in Plato laments that the great men of Athens have not trained their sons to wisdom and virtue; in Meno 93 d ff. besides Pericles, he adduces Themistocles, Aristides, and Thucydides the son of Melesias. Both sons of Pericles died young of the plague; that Xanthippus was a worthless fellow is said by Plutarch, Pericles 36. Cf. 328 c.

εἴχετο: with gen., be in close connection with, pertain to a thing. διδασκάλων cf. 324 d, Meno 94 b ὅσα τέχνης ἔχεται, Theaet. 145 a καὶ ὅσα παιδείας ἔχεται.
