A THEOSOPHIST : APOLLONIUS OF TYANA

nothing and of all that all men have' is thus expounded by Damis : when they feast, themselves and their guests, these Indians are favoured with such fountains as leap from the earth for the pleasure of the Bacchanals when Dionysus makes them and the earth alike to quake. So Apollonius might properly describe them as having what they have not, when, without making any provision, their wants are spontaneously supplied. Their practice is to wear their hair long, like the Lacedaemonians of old ; for head-dress, a white turban ; bare feet ; garments arranged very much in the style of the ex6mis ; the material, that natural wool which the earth produces., This is considered a sacred vestment ; and should any other Indian try to pluck it, the earth will not let the wool go. They carry a ring and a wand, both which are of omnipotent virtue, but are esteemed to be two mysteries.
At Apollonius' approach the other Sages greeted him with gestures of welcome. Iarchas was seated on a high chair, made of black bronze damascened with golden emblems ; the rest had chairs of bronze, but unadorned and less in height, for they recognized the presidency of Iarchas. When he saw Apollonius, he welcomed him in the Greek language and asked for the Indian king's letters. Apollonius wondered at such prescience ; whereupon Iarchas told him further that there was a letter wanting in the epistle (namely a delta) because of an oversight in the writer. And so it proved to be. After he had read them he said, 'And what is your opinion of us, Apollonius ?'
Apoll. Surely that may be inferred from my having made such a journey for your sake as never any man of my country before undertook.
Iarch. And what do you suppose that we know which you know not ?
Apoll. I credit you with superior Science and far superior inspirations. But if I can get no more from you than I have already, 1 shall at least have nothing more to learn.
