    EUTHYPHRO: Well, holiness means doing exactly what I’m doing now: prosecuting a man who’s guilty of murder, or any other crime — whether he’s your own father or mother, or whoever (it doesn’t makes any difference); and not to prosecute a murderer is a sin.

Euthyphro is not able to provide satisfactory answers to. There are also a few epigrams, that is short poems intended as funerary inscriptions or the like, that have been transmitted to us in various ways under Plato's name (some of them are quoted in Diogenes Lærtius' life of Plato).As is the case with the Letters, whether they are actually by Plato has to be decided on a case by case basis.() The Budé collection is a French collection of works by.
