Plutarch, Beasts Are Rational, 986b


nanOdysseus. Dear lady, why are you making fun of me? How can they argue with me or Iwith them so long as they are asses and hogs and lions? Circe. Courage, courage, my ambitious friend. I'll see to it that you shall find them both receptive and responsive. Or rather, one of the number will be enough to thrust and parry for them all. Presto! You may talk with this one. Odysseus. And how amI to address him, Circe? Who in the world was he? Circe. What's that to do with the issue? Call him Gryllus, if you like. I'll retire now to avoid any suggestion that he is arguing against his own convictions to curry favour with me.
