Description

Quoted from the Editor's "Introduction to the Clitopho."

"This dialogue, like some others already mentioned, has been considered spurious. But it was reckoned amongst the genuine by Thrasyllus, as we learn from Diogenes Laertius iii. 50. It is distinctly alluded to by Arrian on Epictetus iii. 22, and Themistius Or. xxvi. p. 320, D., and covertly by Dio Chrysost. Or. xiii. p . 222, D., and Aristides, T. i. p . 78; ii. p. 378, as remarked by Ruhnken on Timaeus in Tpaytrij mum), and Wyttenbach on Julian, p. 42. It contains a summary of the leading doctrines promulgated by Socrates; the greater part of which have formed the subject of separate dialogues by Plato and others. Its commencement alone has been preserved; for the remainder was probably lost by its having been written at the end of the Codex Archetypus, that contained the rest of the existing dialogues of Plato; for it would thus be exposed to the greatest chance of suffering from damp and the other
accidents to which books are liable in the lapse of years: I say the Codex Archetypus;  because it is evident that all the MSS. that have been hitherto collated, are to be traced to such an original; of which the one used by Ficinus was in a more complete state than any that have been examined by Bekker and others, as may be seen from the notes appended to the dialogue."
