arrived from the country, - jl Terpsion? Terprion. No, I came some
time ago: and I have been in the Agora looking for you, and
wondering that I could not find yon. Euc. Why, I was not ia the
city at all. Terp. Where then? Euc. As I was going down to the
harbor, I met Theaetetus; he was being carried up to Athens from
the army at Corinth. Terp. Do you mean that he was alive or dead?
Euc. He was scarcely alive; for he hns been badly wounded, and what
is worse, the sickness which prevails in the army has fastened upon
him. Terp. Is that the dysentery? Euc. Yes. Terp. Alas what a loss
he will be Euc. Yes, Terpsion, he is a noble fellow; I heard some
one highly praising his behavior in this very battle. Terp. I do
not wonder at that; I should wonder at hearing anything else of
him. But why did he go on, instead of stopping at Megara? Euc. He
wanted to get home, for the fact was that I begged and advised him
to remain, but he would not; so I set him on his way, and turned
back, and then I remembered what Socratei had said of him, and
thought how remarkably this, like all hit predictions, had been
fulfilled. I believe that he had seen him L'ttle before his own
death, when Theaetetus was a youth, ani he had a conversation with
him, which he related to me when I came to Athens; he was full of
admiration of his genins, and said that he would most certainly be
a great man, if he lived. Terp. That has certainly proved true; hut
what was the conversation? can you tell me?.. jeuc. No, indeed, not
