Equal to Our Fathers
We must not, then, show ourselves inferior to our fathers or fall short of our own reputation.The same (tr. Jeremy Mynott):
δίκαιον οὖν ἡμᾶς μήτε τῶν πατέρων χείρους φαίνεσθαι μήτε ἡμῶν αὐτῶν τῆς δόξης ἐνδεεστέρους.
We have a duty, therefore, both to show ourselves the equals of our fathers and to live up to our own reputations.
