2.8.1. Beyond and above Heliopolis , Egypt is a narrow land. For it is bounded on the one side by the mountains of Arabia , which run north to south, always running south towards the sea called the Red Sea . In these mountains are the quarries that were hewn out for making the pyramids at Memphis . This way, then, the mountains run, and end in the places of which I have spoken; their greatest width from east to west, as I learned by inquiry, is a two months' journey, and their easternmost boundaries yield frankincense.

To tell it all, Glaucon, would take all our time, but the sum, he said, was this. For all the wrongs they had ever done to anyone and all whom they had severally wronged they had paid the penalty in turn tenfold for each, and the measure of this was by periods of a hundred years each,

120c. then you ought to be of good hope for your dear departed son that he will be reckoned among their number and will be with them. These are the words of the melic poet Pindar regarding the righteous in the other world: For them doth the strength of the sun shine below, While night all the earth doth overstrow. In meadows of roses their suburbs lie, Roses all tinged with a crimson dye. They are shaded by trees that incense bear, And trees with golden fruit so far. Some with horses and sports of might, Others in music and draughts delight. Happiness there grows ever apace, Perfumes are wafted o'er the loved place, As the incense they strew where the gods's altars are And the fire that consumes it is seen from afar.
