Socrates, I was wanting to have some private talk with you, if you had time to spare; even if there is some demand, which is not particularly important, on your time, do spare some, nevertheless, for me.

Why, in any case I happen to have time to spare, and for you, moreover, I have plenty. Well, you are free to say whatever you wish.

Then do you mind if we step aside here from the street into the portico of Zeus the Liberator1?

As you think best.

1 This portico or colonnade was near that of the King Archon, close to the Agora
