Abstract

I am indebted to the comments presented by Mary Lefkowitz, the questions raised by the members of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy that followed the talk on which this paper is based, and the e-mail traffic among the members of the BACAP to which I was given access by John Cleary. Though I have not changed the basic thrust of my paper, the challenges presented have led, I hope, to a more precise statement of my claims. On account of these things, my companions Simmias and Cebes, the philosophers correctly (op5£>s) do not partake of all the desires of the body and are strong and do not hand themselves (betray themselves) to them.

Courtesy of Xenophon and Diogenes Laertius, known as a difficult woman; shrew, virago, harridan are some of the terms that have been ascribed to her. As a woman barely present in ancient literature, lacking the powerful personas of an
