λείξασα κἀκτείνασα φαιδρὸν οὖς, δίκηνSpeaking, outspreading, shiny-souled, in fashion


Ἄτης λαθραίου, τεύξεται κακῇ τύχῃ.Of Até hid, will reach to, by ill fortune!

οἰκοῦσαν ἐν πέτραισι, ναυτίλων βλάβηνHousing in rocks, of mariners the mischief


θύουσαν Ἅιδου μητέρʼ ἄσπονδόν τʼ ἌρηRevelling Haides’ mother, — curse, no truce with


φίλοις πνέουσαν; ὡς δʼ ἐπωλολύξατοBreathing at friends! How piously she shouted


ἡ παντότολμος, ὥσπερ ἐν μάχης τροπῇThe all-courageous, as at turn of battle!


δοκεῖ δὲ χαίρειν νοστίμῳ σωτηρίᾳ.She seems to joy at the back-bringing safety!


καὶ τῶνδʼ ὅμοιον εἴ τι μὴ πείθω· τί γάρ;Of this, too, if I nought persuade, all’s one! Why?

69c. from all these things, and self-restraint and justice and courage and wisdom itself are a kind of purification. And I fancy that those men who established the mysteries were not unenlightened, but in reality had a hidden meaning when they said long ago that whoever goes uninitiated and unsanctified to the other world will lie in the mire, but he who arrives there initiated and purified will dwell with the gods.

2.1. 1. Now the necessity which Archelaus was under of taking a journey to Rome was the occasion of new disturbances; for when he had mourned for his father seven days, and had given a very expensive funeral feast to the multitude (which custom is the occasion of poverty to many of the Jews, because they are forced to feast the multitude; for if anyone omits it, he is not esteemed a holy person), he put on a white garment, and went up to the temple 2.1. And, indeed, at the feast of unleavened bread, which was now at hand, and is by the Jews called the Passover, and used to be celebrated with a great number of sacrifices, an innumerable multitude of the people came out of the country to worship; some of these stood in the temple bewailing the Rabbins [that had been put to death], and procured their sustece by begging, in order to support their sedition. 2.1. but after this family distribution, he gave between them what had been bequeathed to him by Herod, which was a thousand talents, reserving to himself only some inconsiderable presents, in honor of the deceased.

431e. For if the souls which have been severed from a body, or have had no part with one at all, are demigods according to you and the divine Hesiod, Holy dwellers on earth and the guardian spirits of mortals, why deprive souls in bodies of that power by virtue of which the demigods possess the natural faculty of knowing and revealing future events before they happen?
