LUCIAN

Herm. Why, the man in the comedy was not far out :
Put a good face on 't, and thou hast no harm.
It is no such terrible disaster, if a few people go away infected. There are plenty who take the other view-a majority of Greeks, the body and dregs of the people, and the foreigners to a man.

Zeus. Ah, Hermes, but there is a great deal in Darius's remark about Zopyrus-I would rather have had one ally like Damis than be the lord of a thousand Babylons.

As previous extracts show, Lucian's general sympathies are with the Epicureans. Of the other great schools the Stoics offended his common sense, the Cynics his taste. He reviews
the philosophies in The Sale of Cyeeds, from which I select the portraits of Diogenes the Cynic, Socrates, and a Sceptic.

Zeus. Now get those benches straight there, and make the place fit to be seen. Bring up the lots, one of you, and put them in line. Give them a rub up first, though ; we must have them looking their best, to attract bidders. Hermes, you can declare the sale-room open, and a welcome to all comers.-ForSale ! A varied assortment of Live Creeds. Tenets of every description. -Cash on delivery ; or credit allowed on suitable security.
Hermes. Here they come, swarming in. No time to lose ; we must not keep them waiting.
Zeus. Well, let us begin.
Her. What about yonder grubby Pontian ?_ Zeus. Yes, he will do.
Her. You there with the wallet and cloak ; come along, walk round the room. Lot No. 2. A most sturdy and valiant creed, free-born. What offers ?
Second Dealer. Hullo, Mr. Auctioneer, are you going to sell a free man ?
