This episode is part of the dialogue in the previous episode but the attention of the speakers moves to Haliartus in Boeotia. This very broken section also mentions Cnossos and Dionysus Zagreus. The Theodaesia was a well known Cretan festival; it is a type of theoxenia, in which gods are feted at a ritual meal, celebrated in many locations in the Greek world.
