and many other fine and fertile regions reserved for the adornment of the consort; and each of these regions was named after some part of her apparel. So I imagine, if someone should say to the king's mother Amestris, who was wife of Xerxes, “The son of DeinomacheThe mother of Alcibiades. intends to challenge your son; the mother's dresses are worth perhaps fifty minae at the outside, while the son has under three hundred acres at Erchiae,In Attica, about fifteen miles east of Athens.” she would wonder to what on earth t

Birds 1297) for his skill in the game of filliping quails which were specially trained not to flinch. and others of his sort—who undertake to manage the city's affairs, while they still have the slavish hairSlaves in Athens were largely natives of western Asia. and had thick, close hair, very different from the wavy locks of the Greeks. (as the women would say) showing in their minds through their lack of culture, and have not yet got rid of it; who, moreover, have come with their outlandish speech to flatter the state, not to rule it—to these, I tell you, should your eyes be turned; and then you can disregard yourself, and need neither learn what is to be learnt for the great contest in which you are to be engaged, nor pract

s your guardian, Pericles.AlcibiadesYes, you know, Socrates, they say he did not get his wisdom independently, but consorted with many wise men, such as PythocleidesA musician of Ceos (who was perhaps also a Pythagorean philosopher) who taught in Athens. and AnaxagorasAn Ionian philosopher who lived in Athens c. 480-430 B.C.; and now, old as he is, he still confers with DamonAn Athenian musician and sophist. for that very purpose.SocratesWell, but did you ever find a man who was wise in anythinan philosopher) who taught in Athens. and AnaxagorasAn Ionian philosopher who lived in Athens c. 480-430 B.C.; and now, old as he is, he still confers with DamonAn Athenian musician and sophist. for that very purpose.SocratesWell, but did you ever find a man who was wise in anything and yet unable to make another man wise in the same things as himself? For instance, the man who taught you letters was wise himself, and also made you wise, and anyone else he wished to, did he not?AlcibiadesYes.
We arrived yesterday evening from the army at Potidaea,A Cortinthian colony in Chalcidice which was a tributary ally of Athens, and revolted from her in 433 B.C. In the next year an Athenian force met and fought a Peloponnesian force at Potidaea, and then laid siege to the city. Thus began the Peloponnesian War. and I sought with delight, after an absence of some time, my wonted conversations. Accordingly I went into the wrestling-school of Taureas,A professional trainer. opposite the Queen's shrine,There was a shrine of Basile, or the Queen (of whom nothing is known), some way to the south of the Acropolis. Cf. Fraser, Pausanias ii. p. 203. and there I came upon quite a number of people, some of whom were unknown to me, but most of whom I knew. And as soon as they saw me

And moreover, in regard to the Sicilian business,The disastrous Sicilian expedition of 415-413 B.C. Cf. Thuc. vi. and vii. many will tell you what I said about the destruction of the army. As to bygones, you may hear from those who know: but there is an opportunity now of testing the worth of what the sign says. For as the handsome Sannio was setting out on campaign, the sign occurred to me, and he has gone now with Thrasyllus on an expedition bound for Ephesus and Ionia.409 B.C., when Thrasyllus succeeded in recovering Colophon for Athens. He was one of the commanders put to death by the Athenians after the battle of Arginusae, 406 B.C. I accordingly expect him to be either killed or brought very near it, and I have great fears for our force as a whole.

in the first place, are my elder, and further, you have held in your time many of the highest offices in Athens, and are respected by the people of AnagyrusA deme or township of Attica. above all your fellow-townsmen, and by the whole state as much as any man, whereas neither of you can notice anything like this about me. And moreover, if Theages here does despise the instruction of our statesmen, and is looking for some other persons who profess to be able to educate young people, we have here Prodicus of Ceos, Gorgias of Leontini, Polus of Acragas,

TheagesYes.SocratesOr again, do you not consider that Archelaus, son of Perdiccas, who governed recently in Macedonia, governed these same people?TheagesI do.SocratesAnd who do you think were governed by Hippias, son of Peisistratus, who governed in this city? Were they not these people ?TheagesTo be sure they were.SocratesNow, can you tell me what appellation is given to Bacis and Sibyl and our native Amphilytus?In Aristophanes and Plato we find mention of only one “Sibyl” : later the name, like Bacis (an old Boeotian prophet), was applied to several oracular persons in different places. Amphilytus seems to have come from Acarnania to Athens in the time of Peisistratus.Theages Why, soothsayers, of course, Socrat

SocratesI entered the grammar school of the teacher Dionysius, and saw there the young men who are accounted the most comely in form and of distinguished family, and their lovers. Now it chanced that two of the young people were disputing, but about what, I did not clearly overhear: it appeared, however, that they were disputing either about AnaxagorasThe Ionian philosopher who lived in friendship with Pericles at Athens. or about OenopidesA philosopher of Chios, distinguished as a geometer and astronomer.; at any rate, they appeared to be drawing circles,

The memorial of Hipparchus: deceive not a friend.I therefore should never dare, I am sure, to deceive you, who are my friend, or disobey the great Hipparchus, after whose death the Athenians were for three years under the despotic rule of his brother Hippias, and you might have heard anyone of the earlier period say that it was only in these years that there was despotism in Athens,On this point the writer agrees with Thuc. 6.59, who gives what is now the accepted story of Harmodius and Aristogeiton. and that at all other times the Athenians lived very much as in the reign of Cronos. And the subtler sort of people say
