[204a] And what, pray, is this place, and what your pastime?

A wrestling school, he said, of recent construction; and our pastime chiefly consists of discussions, in which we should be happy to let you have a share.

That is very good of you, I said; and who does the teaching there?

Your own comrade, he replied, and supporter, Miccus.

Upon my word, I said, he is no slight person, but a qualified professor.

Then will you please come in with us, he said, so as to see for yourself the company we have there?
