VII. To Hicetas (p. 99)
We read a praising of the title ‘dog’, and of the cloak, small bag, and staff. Ps-Diogenes write to his father, asking him to note that he is happy with little. The argument to the Gods seems more of a Stoic sort than a Cynic one… this seems to be a trend in these Epistles. Or maybe it’s just a Roman flavor?
VIII. To Eugnesius (p. 101)
I’m pretty sure Ps-Diogenes just dropped the mic, to the tune of NWA’s most famous song.
This is part of the Cynic Epistles Reading Plan.
