The Trial of Socrates: 
Antiphon the Sophist

A third century AD papyrus attributed to the first book of On Truth (P.Oxy. XI 1364 fr. 1, cols. v-vii)

Papyrus fragment of Antiphon’s “On Truth,” 3rd century A.D.

1,922 words

Author’s Note:

As usual, I have edited this transcript to remove excessive wordiness. The quotes come from the first edition of A Presocratics Reader, ed. Patricia Curd.  

Antiphon the Sophist was a younger contemporary of Socrates. He was the author of the treatise On Truth, only fragments of which survive. Read more …
