εν βιβλoις γραϕων (D.CHR. 7.102): DIO'S 'EXTEMPORE' ART AND CLEANTHES'... MISCELLANEA ¤n bÛb l oiw gr‹fvn (D.CHR. 7.102): DIO’S ‘EXTEMPORE’ ART AND CLEANTHES’ paradioryÅseiw The second part of Dio’s Seventh Discourse (§81 V .) is devoted to the theme of ‘wealth versus poverty’; in this part the author discusses some conclusions which he has drawn from the Ž rst part of the Discourse, namely the story about the life of the Euboean hunters. Dio wishes to prove that the poor can live as well as, if not better than, the rich. He begins by discussing a well-known passage from Euripides’ Electra (427 V .), which points out the relative advantages of wealthy people, especially their abil- ity to o V er hospitality to strangers and to use expensive means of treat- ment, if they fall ill: skopÇ tŒ xr®mayƒ Éw ¦xei m¡ga sy¡now j¡noiw te doènai sÇm‹ tƒ ¤w nñsouw pesòn dap‹naisi sÇsai . In his attempt to refute this passage, Dio alludes, among others, to some ‘great philosopher’ who has also objected to Euripides’ lines (D.Chr. 7.102): ¤peÜ kaÜ aétoÝw toætoiw toÝw ¦pesin ŽnteÛrhke tÇn p‹nu fi l osñfvn tiw , ùn oédeÛw , ¤moÜ dokeÝn , faÛh n pote fi l oneikoènta toætoiw te Žnteirhk¡nai kaÜ http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mnemosyne Brill
