[264e] to which of these two arts kingship belongs, for that is clear to everyone.

Younger Socrates

Stranger
Anybody could doubtless make a division of the art of tending herds on land.

Younger Socrates
What would the division be?

Stranger
Into the tending of flying and walking animals.

Younger Socrates
Very true.

Stranger
And statesmanship is to be sought in connection with walking animals, is it not? Any fool, so to speak, would believe that, donÕt you think?

Younger Socrates
Of course.

Stranger
And the art of tending animals that walk must, like an even number, be divided in half.

Younger Socrates
Evidently.
