A PHILOSOPHIC MISSIONARY - DION CHRYSOSTOM

that he is fulfilling the mission assigned to him by the Supreme Deity, whose orders may never be resented or disobeyed.
He sees that in everything God has ordained the better to govern and take thought for the inferior : thus He has made skill plan and provide for unskilfulness, power for weakness, wisdom for folly. In all these tasks the ruler's duty is not light but laborious, and full not of ease and leisure but of toil and care. The passengers in a ship can be indifferent : they need not even see the sea or have an idea where they are. In calm weather many do travel in this way, playing draughts, singing or eating all day long : when a storm comes they wrap themselves up and wait for the issue ; some go to sleep and do not get up till they are in port. But the pilot must watch the sea, keep his eye on the sky, look out for land. He must not forget even the undersea world, or he will find himself on some submerged rock or hidden reef. He alone at night can take less sleep than a swimmer. If he steals a few moments of slumber by day his rest is uncertain and in suspense, for he must often call for the sail to be set or the helm put over. So even in his sleep he watches over the ship more than the most wakeful of its other inmates.

The Olympic speech from which the following extracts are taken was delivered at the great assembly of the Olympic games, perhaps in A. D. 105, when Trajan was on the Danube at the second Dacian war. It is a Greek sermon. Phidias' famous statue of Zeus at Olympia suggested a subject-the
justification of portraying God in human form, and the religious value of such portraits. Incidentally Dion expounds his view of the nature of God and of our knowledge of Him. The speech has been called 'one of the most important records of the history of ancient religion '. It is certainly full of genuine feeling.

I HAPPEN to have just made a long journey, as far as the Danube and the land of the Getae. I did not go as a trader or on army service as a bearer or driver. I had no mission
