Plato, Ion, 531e

nanIon. I agree. Soc. And will this some one be the same as he who can distinguish the bad speakers, or different? Ion. The same, I suppose. Soc. And he will be the man who has the art of numeration? Ion. Yes. Soc. And again, when several are talking about what kinds of foods are wholesome, and one of them speaks better than the rest, will it be for two different persons to distinguish the superiority of the best speaker and the inferiority of a worse one, or for the same? Ion. Obviously, I should say, for the same. Soc. Who is he? What is his name? Ion. A doctor. Soc. And so we may state, in general terms, that the same person will always distinguish, given the same subject and several persons talking about it
