“Look at what people usually do…”

Three Greek Vases

“Look at what people usually do — all women in particular, they dedicate the first thing that comes to hand, they swear to offer sacrifice, and promise to found shrines for gods and spirits and children of gods.”

Woman With Gold Bowl

— Plato, The Laws, translation by T. J. Saunders. Quoted in J. B. Connelly, Portrait Of A Priestess, Princeton (2007)
