A PRINCE OF NEUROTICS : AELIUS ARISTIDES

Pele, when an easterly breeze sprang up, which as we went farther became a violent squall, and at last broke into a furious storm. Our ship lifted in the bows and crashed down on her stern and all but went down. Then it was swept by waves from very quarter ; finally, it was driven out to the open sea. weat and confusion of the crew, every kind of shout from the passengers-some friends were travelling with me-but I had only to say ` O Asclepius '. After many and various dangers, after being tossed a thousand times and forced out to sea as we were getting into harbour, causing great anxiety to the onlookers, we achieved difficult and welcome safety. At nightfall the god directed the purge to take place, indicating the means (the results were as drastic as with hellebore, so the experts said, everything being upset by our tossing). He told everything-that I was fated to be shipwrecked; that this was the reason for our misadventure ; that now it was further necessary for our safety and for fulfilling fate completely that I should enter a skiff and be wrecked in the harbour ; that the skiff was to capsize and sink, and some one was to pick me up and take me to the land. Thereby what was necessary would be accomplished., Naturally we were delighted to do this : every one admired the stratagem of this shipwreck, following a danger that was real. We recognized that it was Asclepius too who saved us from the sea. And a further service of his was the purge.

I decided that search should be made: and Rufus went to an outlying farm on his estate, and, finding a sheep which had lambed that night, brought the milk and gave it me. Finally, the god released me from the voyage to Chios. Quite near Phocaea is a place called
