    Socrates has been imprisoned and sentenced to death by an Athenian jury for not believing in the gods of the state though some scholars think it was more for his support of "philosopher kings" as opposed to democracy [2] and for corrupting the youth of the city. Due to this, word choice may not best reflect what was intended, especially their choice of the word "God. Socrates asks for a general definition of holy and a standard that it can be recognized by. Socrates is found guilty by a narrow margin and is asked to propose a penalty.

    Socrates tells him that he had a dream and knows it will be in three days. Then Socrates goes into the Argument of Opposites. He was very religious and deeply moral, which Plato brings forward in his book. Crito is also in attendance for his death. He lost his case and was sentenced.

He accuses Socrates of abandoning his sons and his friends who need him. Socrates was born in Athens, Greece in B. So when they ask him what kind of punishment he thinks is fair, Socrates rejects banishment and imprisonment.

When Socrates tries to bring the conversation back to what is holy and what is approved by the gods, Euthyphro suddenly remembers an appointment and runs away.
