Nevertheless, it is usually assumed that at least the early dialogues of Plato provide a (fairly) accurate representation of Socrates himself.

Business failures caused Hamilton’s father to become bankrupt.

Cruger left Alexanderin charge of the business.

Hamilton’smother was Rachael Fawcette Levine, of French Huguenot descent.
"Lest Meletus bring more cases..." An ironic jest that Meletus might sue Socrates for defamation or libel on behalf of the Presocratics and Sophists whose knowledge he could be seen disparaging.

Later, in 335, it became the site for the school of Aristotle.

"...you told me an affect or quality of it...but you have not yet told me what the pious is." Socrates maintains his ironic pose by accusing Euthyphro that, "you did not wish to make its nature clear to me."

There, Hamilton obtained abachelor’s of arts degree in just one year.

Like his accusers, presents a Socrates talking the kind of "nonsense" that must sound vaguely "philosophical" but which has nothing to do with Socrates' interests, activities, or even personality.

Instead, the office went to one of Plato's nephews.

Since the bull wasn't interested, she got Daedalus to build a model of a cow that would attract the bull but that she could hide in and use to have intercourse.
