Born in Athens, he spent much of his life in Sparta. Actually, several other ancient writers also described Socrates. Plato and Xenophon are merely the most important.

The ostensible subject is making money through agriculture. However we still see Socrates trying to get him to define his terms, and then manipulating him into contradicting himself as they tangle with such topics as whether an enemy can be a form of wealth. For present purposes only the beginning of the work is presented, arranged liked a play.
The goal is to provide an example of the way in which Socratic discussion approached intellectual questions. In the course of the full text, Socrates eventually recounts countless other conversations, which include details about ancient agriculture, like the following: It is easy to suspect Xenophon of making him up at least some of the time, until he seems to morph into a mere literary device in the course of the work.
Xenophon to the reader: I once heard him discuss the subject of estate management in the following manner. Tell me, Critobulus, is estate management the name of a branch of knowledge, like medicine, smithing and carpentry?

But what do we mean now by an estate? Is it the same thing as a house, or is all property that one possesses outside the house also part of the estate? Well, I think that even if the property is situated in different cities, everything a man possesses is part of his estate.
Do not some men possess enemies? Of course ; some in fact possess many. Shall we include their enemies in their possessions? To be sure —meaning thereby the good things that he possesses. You seem to use the word property of whatever is profitable to its owner.
Certainly ; but what is harmful I regard as loss rather than wealth. No, if we assume that wealth is a good thing.
