A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

of the poor, their words, acts, and family relations, to see if because of their poverty they are worse equipped than the rich for a natural and noble existence, if indeed on the whole they are not better off.
The essay concludes with unfavourable remarks on the city life and on the rich.
The following extract shows us Alexandria in the early years of the second century of our era :
IN size and site, men of Alexandria, your city is eminent, and unmistakeably takes second place of all beneath the sun. The great Egyptian nation is its body, or rather. an appendage to it. You have a river, unique in character, equally wonderful and useful, and, compared with all other rivers, great beyond words. With your noble harbours, with your great fleet, with the abundance and disposition of your universal wealth, you are masters of all the Mediterranean, and possessors of the upper seas beyond, the Red Sea and Indian Ocean, names once barely known. So you possess the commerce not of island or harbour, of strait or isthmus, but practically of all the world. For Alexandria's site knits together the world and its most distant nations : it is like the market-place of a single city, collecting all men to a single point, introducing them to each other, and, so far as may be, making them one people. Perhaps you like hearing me say this, and fancy that I am praising you, like the rest of your flatterers. But it was the sea and land, your harbours and site, that I praised rather than you. Have I said that you were wise and reasonable and just ? Or the opposite ? The glory of men resides in discipline, gentleness, concord, in an ordered state, that listens to good counsellors and is not always hunting for pleasure. Ships arriving and departing, a great population, great commerce, great fleets, are to the credit of a fair, a harbour, a market, not of a city. But you are elated if one praises the Nile, as if you yourselves flowed from central Africa.
