This chapter places Plato's use of Hesiod in broader contexts, from rhapsodic performances to public speeches. It argues that Hesiodic poetry formed a battleground for sexual politics in the 4th century BC, and that Plato's reception of Hesiod is fundamentally bound up with ongoing debates about education. In this context, quotable lines from Hesiod could take on a life entirely of their own.

Keywords:   Plato, Hesiod, Timarchus, rumour, rhapsodic, oratory
