[attribution 1] Εὐθύφρων. ὃν διώκων αὖ δοκῶ μαίνεσθαι.

Σωκράτης. τί δέ; πετόμενόν τινα διώκεις;

Εὐθύφρων. πολλοῦ γε δεῖ πέτεσθαι, ὅς γε τυγχάνει ὢν εὖ μάλα πρεσβύτης.

Σωκράτης. τίς οὗτος;

Εὐθύφρων. ὁ ἐμὸς πατήρ.

Σωκράτης. ὁ σός, ὦ βέλτιστε;

Εὐθύφρων. πάνυ μὲν οὖν.

Σωκράτης. ἔστιν δὲ τί τὸ ἔγκλημα καὶ τίνος ἡ δίκη;

Εὐθύφρων. φόνου, ὦ Σώκρατες.

Σωκράτης. Ἡράκλεις. ἦ που, ὦ Εὐθύφρων, ἀγνοεῖται ὑπὸ τῶν πολλῶν ὅπῃ ποτὲ ὀρθῶς ἔχει• οὐ γὰρ οἶμαί γε τοῦ ἐπιτυχόντος [ὀρθῶς] αὐτὸ πρᾶξαι ἀλλὰ πόῤῥω που ἤδη σοφίας ἐλαύνοντος.
