Proverb
Note from The Dialogue Of Apollodorus by Plato

The original form of this proverb has been much debated. In the form in which it is given here there is a pun on the name of Agathon and agathôn (genitive plural of agatohs, good). This gives a point to Socrates' remark which is unavoidably lost in English.
