Ion. Yes. Soc. For instance, if the slave is a cowherd, you say the rhapsode will know what the other should say to pacify his cows when they get fierce, but the cowherd will not? Ion. That is not so. Soc. Well, the sort of thing that a woman ought to say—a spinning-woman—about the working of wool?
