    Excerpt from Plutarch on the Delay of the Divine Justice: Translated With an Introduction and Notes

    He had a wife, who appears to have been of a character kindred to his own at least five children, of whom two sons, if not more, lived to be them selves substantial citizens and worthy members of society; and two brothers, who seem to have pos sessed his full confidence and warm affection. He was singularly happy in his relations to a large circle of friends, especially in Athens, for which he had the lifelong love that students in our time acquire for a university town. He was archon, or mayor, of Oheroneia, probably more than once, the office having doubtless been annual and elect ive, and in this capacity he entered, like a veritable country magistrate, into material details of the public service, superintending, as he says, the measuring of tiles and the delivery of stone and mortar for municipal uses. He officiated for many years as priest of Apollo at Delphi, and as such gave several sumptuous entertainments. Indeed, hospitality of this sort appears, so far as we can see, to have been the sole or chief duty of his priestly office. As an adopted citizen of one of the Athe nian tribes, he was not infrequently a guest at civic banquets and semi - civic festivals.

    As regards Plutarch's philosophy, it is easier to say to which of the great schools he did not belong than to determine by what name he would have preferred to be called. He probably would have termed himself a Platonist, but not, like Cicero, of the New Academy, which had incorporated Pyrrho nism with the provisional acceptance of the Pla tonic philosophy. At the same time, he was a closer follower and a more literal interpreter of Plato than were the N eo-platonists of Alexandria.
