[13b]

Euthyphro
Yes.

Socrates
And the oxherd's art is that of attending to oxen?

Euthyphro
Certainly.

Socrates
And holiness and piety is the art of attending to the gods? Is that what you mean, Euthyphro?

Euthyphro
Yes.

Socrates
Now does attention always aim to accomplish the same end? I mean something like this: It aims at some good or benefit to the one to whom it is given, as you see that horses, when attended to by the horseman's art are benefited and made better; or don't you think so?

Euthyphro
Yes, I do.

Socrates
And dogs are benefited by the huntsman's art
