Plato, Letters, Letter 11 (search)
Plato to Laodamas wishes well-doing.I wrote to you before that in view of all that you say it is of great importance that you yourself should come to Athens. But since you say that this is impossible, the second best course would have been that I, if possible, or Socrates should go to you, as in fact you said in your letter. At present, however, Socrates is laid up with an attack of strangury; while if I were to go there, it would be humiliating if I failed to succeed in the task for which you are inviting me. But I myself have no great hopes of success (as to my reasons for this, another long letter would be required to explain them in full), and moreover, because of my age, I am not physically fit to go wandering about and to run such risks as one encounters both by sea and land; and at present there is nothing but danger for travellers everywhere.Probably an allusion to the prevalence of pirates (such as Alexander of Pherae) in the Aegean Sea. I am able, however, to give y

hich we spent on the Leucadian ship belonged to us; this, then, was the sum I obtained, and on obtaining it I used it myself and sent off these purchases to you.Next, let me tell you what your position is in regard to money, both what you have at Athens and my own. I shall make use of your money, as I told you previously, just as I do that of all my other friends; I use as little as I possibly can, only just so much as I and the man I get it from agree to be necessary or right or fitting. Nowto my visit to your court, we must do as I said before: I must strive hard to keep the expense as low as possible, and if ever that is beyond my power, the charge must fall upon you.In the next place, as regards the spending of your own money at Athens, I have to tell you, first of all, that, contrary to what we supposed, you have not a single friend who will advance money in case I am required to spend something on furnishing a chorus or the like; and further, if you yourself have some urgent

was unknown to Dionysius until he went to Sicily with Plato in 361 B.C., this request seems strange. and send him home. Speusippus, too, begs you to do so; and Philistion also promised me, that, if you would release him, he would gladly come to Athens. Many thanks for releasing the man in the stone-quarries; and my request with regard to his household and Hegesippus, the son of Ariston,Nothing further is known of any of the persons here mentioned. is no hard matter; for in your letter you sof Ariston,Nothing further is known of any of the persons here mentioned. is no hard matter; for in your letter you said that should anyone wrong him or them and you come to know of it you would not allow it. It is proper for me also to say what is true about Lysicleides; for of all those who have come to Athens from Sicily he is the only one who has not misrepresented your association with me; on the contrary, he always speaks nicely about past events and puts the best construction on them.

if we had happened to be living at Megara,A town close to Athens, to which the disciples of Socrates retreated after his de long story short—Dion came from the Peloponnesus and from Athens and admonished Dionysius by deed.i.e. by a military campaitoday ought to hear what then took place. I, a citizen of Athens, a companion of Dion, an ally of his own, went to the tyraome from exile, Dion attached to himself two brothers from Athens,Callipus and Philostratus; cf. Plutarch,Dion, cc. 54 ff. lf and from the whole of the Peloponnese, not fearing even Athens itself; for there too there are those who surpass all men by fire, or all this persistent account which had come to Athens was empty rumor. Now there is a method of testing such maty he shall take shall be deposited in the Peloponnese and Athens with such persons as you shall think fit; and he shall enes; and amongst others some of the servants who were from Athens, fellow-citizens of my own, came to me and reported that I
