BOOK X

" But these," I said, "are as nothing in number or greatness compared with those other recompenses which await the just and the unjust after death. And these must be heard in order that both just and unjust may receive in full the debt of description which the argument owes to them."
" Speak on," he said, " there are few things that I would more gladly hear."
" Well," I said, " I will tell you a story, not of Alcinous but of a brave man, Er, son of Armenius, of 'the race of Pamphylia. He was once killed in war; and when, after ten days the bodies of the slain were taken up already in a state of decomposition, his body was found in perfect preservation, and was carried home to be buried. And on the twelfth day, as he was lying on the pyre, he came to life again, and when he had revived, related what he had seen in the other world. He said that when his soul had left the body he went on a journey with a great company and that they came to a mysterious place, where there were two openings in the earth adjacent to one another, and exactly opposite them there were two openings in the heaven above. In the intermediate space sat judges. These, when they had pronounced their judgments, commanded the just to take the road to the right upward through the heaven, first binding in front of them tablets showing the judgments that had been given. The unjust they ordered to take the left hand road which led downward; these also bore the evidence of all their deeds bound upon their backs. On his arrival, they told him that he was to be the reporter to mankind
