Euripides, Bacchae, 264-269


Κάδμον τε τὸν σπείραντα γηγενῆ στάχυνOh, what impiety! O stranger, do you not reverence the gods and Kadmos who sowed the earth-born crop?


Ἐχίονος δʼ ὢν παῖς καταισχύνεις γένος; ΤειρεσίαςDo you, the child of Echion, bring shame to your race? Teiresia


ὅταν λάβῃ τις τῶν λόγων ἀνὴρ σοφὸςWhenever a wise man takes a good occasion for his speech, it is not a great task to speak well. You have a rapid tongue as though you were sensible, but there is no sense in your words.


καλὰς ἀφορμάς, οὐ μέγʼ ἔργον εὖ λέγειν·Whenever a wise man takes a good occasion for his speech, it is not a great task to speak well. You have a rapid tongue as though you were sensible, but there is no sense in your words.


σὺ δʼ εὔτροχον μὲν γλῶσσαν ὡς φρονῶν ἔχειςWhenever a wise man takes a good occasion for his speech, it is not a great task to speak well. You have a rapid tongue as though you were sensible, but there is no sense in your words.


ἐν τοῖς λόγοισι δʼ οὐκ ἔνεισί σοι φρένες.Whenever a wise man takes a good occasion for his speech, it is not a great task to speak well. You have a rapid tongue as though you were sensible, but there is no sense in your words.

6.2. A story is told that once on a time the head of a one-horned ram was brought to Pericles from his country-place, and that Lampon the seer, when he saw how the horn grew strong and solid from the middle of the forehead, declared that, whereas there were two powerful parties in the city, that of Thucydides and that of Pericles, the mastery would finally devolve upon one man,—the man to whom this sign had been given. Anaxagoras, however, had the skull cut in two, and showed that the brain had not filled out its position, but had drawn together to a point, like an egg, at that particular spot in the entire cavity where the root of the horn began.
