Plato

"Euthyphro (Full Text)"

PERSONS OF THE DIALOGUE: Socrates, Euthyphro

SCENE: The Porch of the King Archon.

EUTHYPHRO
Why have you left the Lyceum, Socrates? and what are you doing in the Porch of the King Archon? Surely you cannot be concerned in a suit before the King, like myself?

SOCRATES
Not in a suit, Euthyphro; impeachment is the word which the Athenians use.

EUTHYPHRO
What! I suppose that some one has been prosecuting you, for I cannot believe that you are the prosecutor of another.

SOCRATES
Certainly not.

EUTHYPHRO
Then some one else has been prosecuting you?

SOCRATES
Yes.

EUTHYPHRO
And who is he?

SOCRATES
A young man who is little known, Euthyphro; and I hardly know him. His name is Meletus, and he is of the deme of Pitthis. Perhaps you may remember his appearance; he has a beak, and long straight hair, and a beard which is ill grown.
