Excerpt: BOOK I. I I have often wondered by what arguments those who indicted[1] Socrates could have persuaded the Athenians that his life was justly forfeit to the state. The indictment was to this effect: ?Socrates is guilty of crime in refusing to recognise the gods acknowledged by the state, and importing strange divinities of his own; he is further guilty of corrupting the young.? [1] {oi grapsamenoi} = Meletus (below, IV. iv. 4, viii. 4; ?Apol.? 11, 19), Anytus (Apol.? 29), and Lycon. See Plat. ?Apol.? II. v. 18; Diog. Laert. II. v. (Socr.); M. Schanz, ?Plat. Apol. mit deutschen Kemmentar, Einleitung,? S. 5 foll. In the first place, what evidence did they produce that Socrates refused to recognise the gods acknowledged by the state? Was it that he did not sacrifice? or that he dispensed with divination? On the contrary, he was often to be seen engaged in sacrifice, at home or at the common altars of the state.
