And having supposed this man to be such a one, let us in our description place the just man by his side, a man ingenuous and noble, desiring, as Aeschylus says,(5) not to seem, but to be good. We must certainly take away the seeming; for if he shall seem to be just he will be rewarded with honors and gifts on account of his reputation.

He must then be stripped of all except justice, and the contrast between this man and the other must be made complete; for while he is guilty of no unjust,act let him have the worst reputation for injustice, in order that he may have his love of justice tested by not being made to flinch by ill repute or its consequences ; but let him go on with a firm step till the day of his death, unswerving in his justice, yet believed to be unjust all his life, in order
