Apology. Plato presents a version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself against the charges of "corrupting the young and not believing the gods in whom the city believes," among other accusations. Although the Apology most likely is not a verbatim account of the trial, many scholars regard the Apology as the most reliable source of information about the trial and about Socrates himself. As such, modern readers should find interest in the Apology not only as a piece of literature, but also as a window into the persons and customs of ancient Greece.
