First Paragraph

I went down to the Peiraeus yesterday with Glaucon, Ariston's son, to pay my devoirs to the goddess, and at the same time I wanted to see how they would manage the festival, as this was the first time they held it. A fine procession I thought it which our people made, but the Thracians' seemed to be quite as good. We made our prayers then, and saw the show, and set off for the city.
