The Seventh Letter touches upon a variety of themes, not always in an organized fashion. It is by far the longest of the epistles of Plato and gives an autobiographical account of his activities in Sicily as part of the intrigues between Dion and Dionysius of Syracuse for the tyranny of Syracuse. Of all the letters attributed to Plato, the Seventh Letter is widely considered the only one that might be authentic.
