Notes

A finely-bound copy of the first separate printing of these three dialogues printed under the name of to Aeschines of Sphettus, or Aeschines Socraticus (to distinguish him from the Attic orator). Aeschines was a follower of Socrates, reportedly present at his execution, and known to have written Socratic dialogues, though the three edited here do not correspond with the works attributed to him in ancient sources.
