Texts


ἀλλ᾽ εἰ μὴ Σπεύσιππον ἐμάνθανον ὧδε θανεῖσθαι,
οὐκ ἂν ἔπεισὲ μέ τις τόδε λέξαι,
ὡς ἦν οὐχὶ Πλάτωνι πρὸς αἵματος: οὐ γὰρ ἀθυμῶν
κάτθανεν ἂν διά τι σφόδρα μικρόν.

— Paton edition

If I had not heard that Speussipus would die so,
no one would have persuaded me to say this, that he
was not akin to Plato ; for then he would not have
died disheartened by reason of a matter exceeding small.
