A philosopher among Hellenes.
Lysias in the speech - if genuine - Reply to the indictment of Mixidemos [writes]: "and he has two [slave-]boys in attendance, one of whom he calls Mousaios, the other Hesiod".[1] That the man on trial gave the slaves these names purposely [is] clear. But concerning [sc. the original] Mousaios, some have said that the man [came] from Thrace, others that he is a native [Athenian], from Eleusis.
Greek Original:
Μουσαῖος: παρ' Ἕλλησι φιλόσοφος. Λυσίας πρὸς τὴν Μιξιδήμου γραφήν, [εἰ] γνήσιος: καὶ δύο παῖδας αὐτῷ ἀκολούθους εἶναι, ὧν οὗτος τὸν μὲν Μουσαῖον καλεῖ, τὸν δὲ Ἡσίοδον. ὅτι ὁ μὲν κρινόμενος ἐπετήδευε τοὺς οἰκέτας τοῦτο καλεῖν δῆλον. περὶ δὲ Μουσαίου οἱ μὲν ἐκ Θρᾴκης εἰρήκασι τὸν ἄνδρα εἶναι, οἱ δὲ αὐτόχθονα ἐξ Ἐλευσῖνος.
