One day the king's shepherds were in the fields with their flocks, when a mighty storm arose and with a loud crash like thunder the earth yawned (hio) and a huge chasm (hiatus) opened beneath their feet. The rest fled in dismay, but Gyges boldly descended into the chasm, where he saw a brazen horse with doors in its side. And when the doors were opened, he perceived the body of a dead man with a gold ring upon his finger. This ring Gyges immediately drew off and, putting it on · himself, reäscended to the liglit. And not long after he happened to be present at a shepherds' gathering and the ring was upon his hand. And happening to turn the bezel (pala) of the ring to the palm of his hand, he instantly became invisible, though able himself to see all that was going on. But when he turned the ring back to its place, he instantly became visible again. Struck with the wonderful virtne (opportunitas) of the ring he immediately repaired to the palace, and easily gaining admission by its means to the royal bedchamber, he killed the king and took possession of the throne.

Quid est enim, per deos, optabilius sapientia ? quid praestantius ? quid homini melius? quid homine dignius ? Hanc igitur qui expetunt philosophi nominantur: nec quidquam aliud est philosophia, si interpretari velis, praeter studium sapientiae. Sapientia autem est (at a veteribus philosophis definitum est) rerum divinarum et humanarum caussarumque quibus hae res continentur scientia : cujus studium qui vituperat haud sane intelligo quidnam sit quod laudandum putet. Nam si oblectatio quaeritur animi requiesque curarum, quae conferri cum eorum studiis potest qui semper aliquid anquirunt quod spectet et valeat ad bene beateque vivendum ?
