I mean to remember a dialogue or diatribe about how ridiculous it was to purchase a famous persons pen, or table, or what not, as if owning these items could give you some share in their excellence. It was quite stinging. I mean that it was Lucian of Samosata, but I can't for the life of me find the section, and now I'm starting to wonder if my memory fails me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
