Lucian, The Runaways, 3


nanZeus. I'll quote you his own words. He made a speech, explaining his motives to the public. As far as I remember, he said–but who comes here in such haste? There must be something wrong: she is crying; someone has been ill treating her. Why, it is Philosophy, in a sad way, calling out to me. Why are you crying, child? and what brings you here, away from the world? More misdeeds of the ignorant herd? a repetition of the Socrates and Anytus affair? is that it?Phi. No, father, nothing of that kind. The common people have been most polite and respectful; they are my most devout admirers,–worshippers, I might almost say; not that they understand much of what I tell them. No; it was those–I don't know what to call them–but the people who pretend to be on such friendly terms with me, and are always using my name;–the wretches!
