Axiochus  (ΑΞΙΟΧΟΣ) may not have been written by Plato. Socrates presents various arguments to the gravely ill Axiochus for why he should not fear death. The first is that the dead experience nothing because they do not exist and so by definition can not suffer from death. When this argument fails Socrates discusses the immortality of the soul, predestination, the final judgement, the joys of the afterlife for the good and the sufferings of the damned.  Uncompressed 24-bit 192 kHz...

Olympiodorus the Younger (ΟΛΥΜΠΙΟΔΩΡΟΣ Ο ΝΕΩΤΕΡΟΣ) was a Neoplatonist philosopher who lived in the early years of the Byzantine Empire. Justinian's Decree of 529 closed Plato's Academy in Athens and other Pagan schools but Olympiodorus avoided persecution in part because the Alexandrian School was less involved in politics. At his death the School passed into the hands of Christian Aristotelians. (Adapted from Wikipedia) Uncompressed 24-bit 192 kHz WAV64 version of the...
