### SAILORS By Zeus the rhapsode is indeed a fool, Dikaiopolis.

## στρατηγὸς μὲν γὰρ δήπου ἄριστος τῶν Ἑλλήνων ἐστὶν ὁ ἄνθρωπος, ἀλλὰ οὐκ οἶδεν ἀκριβῶς πότερον “μέλαινα” ἢ “θοὴ” ἢ “κοίλη” ἡ ναῦς.

### The fellow is, of course, the best general of the Greeks, but he does not know precisely whether the ship is “black” or “swift” or “hollow.”

## μῶρος οὖν ἐστιν ὁ ἄριστος τῶν Ἑλλήνων στρατηγός.

### So the best general of the Greeks is a fool.
