Lysias, Against Eratosthenes, section 52 (search)
For if their quarrel had been in the cause of those who had suffered wrong, at what moment could a ruler have more gloriously displayed his own loyalty than on the seizure of Phyle by Thrasybulus?In the autumn of 404 B.C. Phyle commanded the road from Thebes to Athens, about twelve miles from the latter. But, instead of offering or bringing some aid to the men at Phyle, he went with his partners in power to Salamis and Eleusis, and haled to prison three hundred of the citizens, and by a single resolutionAn illegality like that of the condemnation of the generals after Arginusae. The law required that each accused person should be voted on separately. condemned them all to death.
Lysias, Against Alcibiades 1, section 4 (search)
Now it is reasonable, gentlemen of the jury, that men who are now trying such a case for the first time since we settled the peacei.e., the peace of 404 B.C, which ended the Peloponnesian War. should act not merely as jurors, but in fact as law-makers. For you know well that your decision upon these cases will determine the attitude of the city towards them for all time. And it is the duty, in my opinion, alike of a loyal citizen and of a just juror to put such constructions on the laws as are likely to be of benefit to the city in the future.

When his father was dead404 B.C. Archebiades, who had become his lover, obtained his release. Not long afterwards, having diced away his fortune, he took ship at White Cliff,On the Propontis. and attempted to drown his friends at sea.
Lysias, For Mantitheus, section 4 (search)
Our father, before the disaster at the Hellespont,At Aegospotami, 405 B.C. had sent us abroad to live at the court of Satyrus, on the Pontus.At Panticapaeum in the east corner of the Tauric Chersonese (Crimea), capital of the Kingdom of Bosphorus, which exported corn to Athens. We were not residing in Athens either when the walls were being demolished or when the constitution was being changed.In the spring of 404 B.C. We came here five days before the people at Phyle returned to the Peiraeus.In May, 403 B
He was involved in the kind of crisisThe oligarchic revolution of the Thirty, 404 B.C. in which the majority of men not only shift about according to circumstances, but also yield to the vagaries of fortune. The democracy was faced with failure; he was not being driven out of public life, nor did he nurse any private enmity against those who were about to be the rulers. And yet, although it was open to him to become one of the Thirty and to have as much power as any man, he chose rather to perish in working for your safety than to endure the sight of the demolition of the walls, the surrender of the ships to the enemy and the enslavement of your people.
Lysias, On the Property of Aristophanes, section 52 (search)
For I suppose you know that Alcibiades held command for four or five years411-407 B.C. in succession, keeping the upper hand and winning victories over the Lacedaemonians: the cities thought well to give him twice as much as any other commander, so that some people supposed that he had more than a hundred talents. But when he diedHe was murdered in Phrygia, 404 B.C. he left evidence that this was not true: for he bequeathed a smaller fortune to his children than he had inherited himself from his guardians.
Lysias, On the Refusal of a Pension, section 25 (search)
That is not the sort of use I happen to make of such means of subsistence as I have. That I am grossly insolent and savage? Even he would not allege this himself, except he should wish to add one more to the series of his lies. Or that I was in power at the time of the Thirty, and oppressed a great number of the citizens? But I went into exile with your people to Chalcis,In Euboea, 404 B.C. and when I was free to live secure as a citizen with those personsi.e., the Thirty. I chose to depart and share your perils.
Now I, gentlemen of the jury, never suffered any misfortune during that time,The six years between the restoration of the democracy in 410 B.C. and the tyranny of the Thirty in 404 B.C. either private or public, which could lead me, through eagerness to be relieved of present ills, to court a change in our system. I have equipped a warship five times, fought in four sea-battles, contributed to many war levies, and performed my other public services as amply as any citizen.
Plato, Euthydemus, section 275a (search)
and the practice of virtue?We think so, at least, Socrates.Well then, please defer the display of all the rest to some other occasion, I said, and exhibit this one thing. You are to persuade this young fellow here that he ought to ensue wisdom and practise virtue, and so you will oblige both me and all these present. This youth happens to be in just the sort of condition I speak of; and I and all of us here are at this moment anxious for him to become as good as possible. He is the son of Axiochus, son of the former Alcibiades,i.e. the famous Alcibiades, who died in 404 B.C. at the age of 44. The supposed time of this discussion must be a year or two before Socrates' death (399 B.C.).

Sophocles, Eratosthenes, Charicles, Onomacles,404 B.C. Theognis, Aeschines, Theogenes, Cleomedes, Erval contingents of the allies to their several404 B.C. cities, and he sailed home with the Laconian ocracy, Theramenes opposed him, saying that it404 B.C. was not reasonable to put a man to death becallent men outside this body nor rascals within404 B.C. it. “Besides,” he said, “we are undertaking, ou consider the matter, that no one finds more404 B.C. fault with the present proceedings than Thera and he was a leader in that government. When,404 B.C. however, he perceived that some opposition tol not be able to do the same thing to us also?404 B.C. We therefore arraign him on the charge of plothey nevertheless sailed away and left them to404 B.C. perish. I do not wonder, however, that Critia I knew that all those who had been zealous in404 B.C. the state's cause would look upon us with suscall him?
