Socrates vs. an Indian philosopher

Now Aristoxenus the Musician says that this argument comes from the Indians:
for a certain man of that nation fell in with Socrates at Athens, and
presently asked him, what he was doing in philosophy: and when he said, that
he was studying human life, the Indian laughed at him, and said that no one
could comprehend things human, if he were ignorant of things divine.

(Eusebius of Caesarea: Praeparatio Evangelica (Preparation for the Gospel). Tr. E.H. Gifford, 1903 -- Book 11, Preface, Ch. III)
