Socrates' Dream

In Plato’s Phaedo, he tells of the extreme dream Socrates had while in prison the night before his execution.

Actually I did the image first
then made it fit
by googling Socrates and Dream.
What the feck, it does fit!
Never read any Plato,
though I imagine....
its mostly about lying on couches under olive trees, eyeing up the athletic young wine-bearers and ocassionally considering weighty stuff like mortally, friendship, politics etc before falling off said couches and making unsuccessful passes at the wine-bearers
