Cicero, Pro Murena 13.29

.”As they say that, among Greek musicians, those who could not be flute players now play the cithara, so we see that those who could not become orators found their way down to the study of the law.”

Ut aiunt in Graecis artificibus eos auledos esse qui citharoedi fieri non potuerint, sic nos videmus, qui oratores evadere non potuerint, eos ad iuris studium devenire.
