[531a] but for the moment, please answer this little question: are you skilled in Homer only, or in Hesiod and Archilochus as well?

Ion
No, no, only in Homer; for that seems to me quite enough.

Socrates
And is there anything on which Homer and Hesiod both say the same?

Ion
Yes, I think there are many such cases.

Socrates
Then in those cases would you expound better what Homer says than what Hesiod says?

Ion
I should do it equally well in those cases, Socrates, where they say the same.
