Critias was making a fool of himself over the youthful Euthydemus, and Socrates pointed out to him that it was both demeaning and unseemly for a gentleman to beg for favours from someone he wanted to impress. Then Plato remembers his geography, and having realised that the Asiatic Rhadamathys would not have judged Socrates, quickly brings in Aeacus, who was responsible for Europeans and was also Alcibiades’ legendary ancestor.

It was also-perhaps significantly—the word used to describe the Spartan Timaea’s confiding to her intimates that her son’s name was really Alcibiades, not Leotychidas: Such questioning regarding the status of the laws could be regarded as highly impious.


Apelt answers the obvious question: Critias’ relations with Alcibiades seem to have been friendly until late in plato their lives. Since he made his triumphal return to Athens in the late spring, he would have been five or six months late for the Lesser Mysteries assuming they were still being celebrated ,84 and would thus have missed them, hence perhaps the ironic reference to Callicles’ irregular initiation.

This conclusion stands, admittedly, in contrast to the common view that Xenophon is a fairly traditional supporter of traditional conceptions of morality. The reference to young lions e not only recalls the Chorus in the Agamemnon7’2- but the scene in Frogs where Dionysus asks Aeschylus and Euripides what they would do about Alcibiades, and Aeschylus replies that “It were best not to raise a lion cub in the city, but having done so, to indulge his alfibiades.

On another occasion, Socrates was closely involved in the arrest of Theramenes, a relatively moderate member of the Thirty whom Critias had accused of betraying the cause. This individual is not attested as kalos and thus “available” until The most outstanding example in terms of the numbers involved was the judicial massacre of Eleusinians in order to create a bolt-hole at Eleusis for the Thirty.

Alcibiades was notoriously late in arriving at the battle of Abydus,30 and the reason he had been deprived of his last generalship was his apparently careless absence from his fleet during a crucial action. Critias brings to Socrates his cousin Charmides who was Plato’s uncle, and was later to die during the overthrow of the Thirty.

Scholion to PL Tim. Or, at least, it deters generals from making daring decisions that might skirt the rules of ordinary propriety or piety, decisions that might often be necessary in military matters.

It is meant to show that Socrates did not corrupt Alcibiades and Critias, and Xenophon insisted that while they were with Socrates the two behaved well.
