Traduction française
however, on the subject of kings a brief statement must be made as to what he says 
they should be like. Whenever, for instance, he praises any king, he calls him "the 
peer of Zeus in wisdom"; and all the good kings are "Zeus-nurtured"; and Minos, 
who has the highest reputation among the Greeks for justice, he says is both the 
associate and pupil of Zeus,  his idea being that Minos was the first and greatest 
king of all, and the only one who himself understood and handed down the art of 
kingship, and also that good kings should shape their course with an eye to Minos, 
patterning their own conduct after a god, so far as humanly possible.
