3), in which Socrates sketches how his ideal city-state (πόλις) could decline into a tyranny through four increasingly unjust forms of government, using the analogy of a father who gives birth to an inferior individual. An echo of Plato’s presentation of individual decline mapped onto communal transition may be seen in a reworking of the races narrative in the (largely extant) Aratus, a translation of Aratus’ Phaenomena ascribed to Germanicus Caesar, nephew of Tiberius (c. 14 ce). Where Aratus’ revision of Hesiod’s metallic account spoke only of ‘generations’, Germanicus uses saecula, aetas, suboles and again saecula (the latter two in the voice of the disappearing Maiden addressing the Silver men), proles (‘offspring’) and mens (‘mind, mentality’) to mark four different stages of the 110 111 On the translation of γένος, see Rosenmeyer (1957) 266, Fontenrose (1974) 1, Calame (2004) 67–8.
