Persons of the Dialogue : DEMODOCUS, SOCRATES, THEAGES.
[121a] Demodocus : Socrates, I was wanting to have some private talk with you, if you had time to spare ; even if there is some demand, which is not particularly important, on your time, do spare some, nevertheless, for me.
Socrates : Why, in any case I happen to have time to spare, and for you, moreover, I have plenty. Well, you are free to say whatever you wish.
Demodocus : Then do you mind if we step aside here from the street into the portico of Zeus the Liberator ?
