[283b] and many people agree with me that the wise man must be wise for himself especially1; and the test of this is, who makes the most money. Well, so much for that. But tell me this: at which of the cities that you go to did you make the most money? Or are we to take it that it was at Lacedaemon, where your visits have been most frequent?

Hippias
No, by Zeus, it was not, Socrates.

Socrates
What's that you say? But did you make least there?


1 Apparently a proverbial expression like “physician, heal thyself” or “look out for number one.”
