Tiresias: The Ancient Mediterranean Religions Source Database

Plato, Ion, 540b

nanSoc. By those instances you imply the subjects of practically all the other arts. Well, as he does not know all of them, which kinds will he know? Ion. Those things, I imagine, that it befits a man to say, and the sort of thing that a woman should say; the sort for a slave and the sort for a freeman; and the sort for a subject or for a ruler. Soc. Do you mean that the rhapsode will know better than the pilot what sort of thing a ruler of a storm-tossed vessel at sea should say? Ion. No, the pilot knows better in that case.
