Demodocus (ΔΗΜΟΔΟΚΟΣ) my not have been written by Plato. The author asks the following questions: If citizens are competent to vote correctly then why do they need advisors? If either a complainant or defendant is lying then why is it beneficial to hear the party who is lying instead of just hearing the truthful person? If someone refuses to lend money when asked then who is at fault? Is it a mistake to give credence to a stranger? Painting: Judith Beheading Holofernes by Michelangelo Merisi.
