Agathon, fr. 9


“Someone might say that this is probably true:

mortals experience many improbable things.”


τάχ’ ἄν τις εἰκὸς αὐτὸ τοῦτ’ εἶναι λέγοι,

βροτοῖσι πολλὰ τυγχάνειν οὐκ εἰκότα


As usual, the Greek is more fun. But this translation isn’t awful…but the sentiment is a little simple. The only certainty is uncertainty!


Agathon, we’ve met him before.
