Hiya guys, I was hoping if anyone could help out. I heard a long time ago that Plato once sacrificed an animal, I think it was a cock, to an idol. Is this true? I can't seem to find any information about it. Did this philosopher ever sacrifice anything to any idol? Thanks guys!

In Plato's Phaedo, Socrates told Crito he owed the God Asclepius a cock. Is that of what you're thinking?

What do you mean by idol? That's a pejorative biblical term if I'm not mistaken. Did he sacrifice to one of the Greek gods during his life? You can bet your house on it.
