rtake from tine to time. The TRIH/RARXOS served for a year as the commander of a trireme; and although the State furnished rigging etc., and pay for the crew, the trierach was to expend large sums on repairs and to make up shortages in the payment of his men from his own pocket. The average cost of a Trierarchy was 50 minae. I have furnished a brilliant chorus,i.e. as Choregus he had paid for the training and equipment of a chorus at one of the dramatic or choral festivals so frequent at Athens and throughout Greece in general. I have often advanced money to friends, and I have frequently paid large sums under guarantees given for others; my wealth has come not from litigation, but from hard work;The Greek is a deliberate jingle, which cannot be rendered convincingly in English. Perhaps “. . . not from litigation, but from application” might serve. and I have been a religious and law-abiding man. If my character is such as this, you must not deem me guilty of anything sinful

You reply that if I had been allowed my freedom, I should have made off without awaiting my trial—as though you had forced me to enter this country against my will. Yet if I attached no importance to being debarred from Athens for the future, it was equally open to me either to disregard the summons to appear in court and so lose the case by default, or to avail myself of the right given to every one of leaving the country after making the first speech for the defense.i.e., the prosecution justdant be prevented from slipping through their fingers. The defendant objects to this on two grounds: (a) The prosecution have no reason to assume that they would not have faced a di/kh fo/nou if left at liberty. In fact, he cut himself off from Athens by so defaulting, and that was a strong deterrent. (b) In any case, it was recognized that the defendant in a di/kh fo/nou had the right of withdrawing into exile either before or during the trial. The speaker is of course careful not to rem

There was an upper room in our house occupied by Philoneos, a highly respected friend of our father's, during his visits to Athens. Now Philoneos had a mistress a whom he proposed to place in a brothel.Clearly as a slave, as Philoneos has complete control over her, and she was later tortured and summarily executed. My brother's mother made friends with her;

And the prosecution were in Athens: they witnessed it: by registering their charge they could have debarred me from it all. In spite of that, they did not see fit to do so. Yet if their wrong was real, their duty to alike enough to keep the memory of it fresh and to make it their constant thought. Then why did they fail to register a charge? Their reason was the same as their reason for not refusing to associate and converse with me. They associated with me because they did not think me a murderer and they refused to register a charge for exactly the same reason: they did not think that I had either killed the boy, been concerned in his death, or had any part in the affair at all.

friends on security, or else handed him over to the magistrates of Athens in order that his fate might be decided by a court. As it was, younscriptions confirms this. Decrees regulating the relation between Athens and certain members of her confederacy have survived, from which itall cases of treason involving capital punishment shall be tried at Athens, the Chalcidian Decree (I.G. i2. 39) that cases arising from the euand involving exile, death, or a)timi/a, shall likewise be tried at Athens, while the Milesian Decree (I.G. i2. 22) allows the local courts a however, that although the trial of Euxitheus himself took place at Athens, the choice of such a forum was not necessarily determined by a sim transferring the criminal jurisdiction of the Mytilenean courts to Athens. Such a decree doubtless existed; but those which have survived ag to prevent our supposing that the trial would have taken place in Athens in any event. You thought fit to let the present court decide the

Before the revolt of MytileneMytilene had revolted from Athens some ten years previously, in 428. my father gave visible proof of his devotion to your interests. When, however, the city as a whole was so ill-advised as to commit the blunder of revolting,Although the th=s u(mete/ras gnw/mhs of the Mss., if retained and taken with h(/marte, would give the sense “failed in what you expected of them,” an expression for which there are parallels, sunecamartei=n REQUIRES h(/marte alone to balance it, and the repetition of gnw/mh lines later is harsh in the extreme. he was forced to join the city as a whole in that blunder. Not but what even then his feelings towards you remained unchanged: although he could no longer display his devotion in the old way. It was not easy for him to leave the city, as the ties which bound him, his children, and his property, were strong ones; nor yet could he set it at defiance as long as he remained the

island, except for Methymna, divided among Athenian cleruchs. These drew a fixed rent from the inhabitants, who continued to work the land. he has not been guilty of a single fault, of a single lapse from duty. He has failed neither the city of Athens nor that of Mytilene, when a public service was demanded of him; he regularly furnishes choruses, and always pays the imposts.The choruses mentioned were of course local, and performed at the Mytilenean festivals. The “services to Athens” amounrly furnishes choruses, and always pays the imposts.The choruses mentioned were of course local, and performed at the Mytilenean festivals. The “services to Athens” amount to nothing more than the payment of te/lh(?harbor-dues). Professor Wade-Gery suggests to me that the ei)kosth/ may be meant, a 5 per cent impost which replaced the tribute early in 413 (Thuc. 7.28). If so, the date of the speech must fall between the spring of 413 and the autumn, when news of the Sicilian di

If Aenus is his favorite place of resort, that fact does not mean that he is evading any of his obligations towards Athens,Or possibly Mytilene. or that he has become the citizen of another city, like those others, some of whom I see crossing to the mainland and settling among your enemies, while the rest actually litigate with yo the settlement of private disputes, generally commercial in character, between the citizens of different states. Fragments of two such treaties have survived : Athens-Phaseils (I.G.i2 16 ff.) and Athens-Mytilene (I.G. i2 60 ff.); and in the first of these there is a reference to a third, Athens-Chios. It is quite certain, howoyal citizen of Mytilene under Athenian rule, and other Mytileneans who, since the revolt of Lesbos ten years previously, have either (a) shown their hostility to Athens passively by settling on the Asiatic coast in towns under Persian control or (b) shown it actively by remaining in Lesbos and initiating an unending seri

ice and the facts cannot prevail against that decision. Once you condemn me, I must perforce obey your verdict and the law, even if I am not the murderer or concerned in the crime. No one would venture either to disregard the sentence passed upon him because he was sure that he had had no part in the crime, or to disobey the law if he knew in his heart that he was guilty of such a deed. He has to submit to the verdict in defiance of the facts, or submit to the facts themselves, as the case may be, above all if his victim has none to avenge him.The speaker is here thinking of the master who has killed his slave; the slave has no family to institute proceedings on his behalf (cf. Antiph. 6.4 f.). The argument of 87 as a whole sounds odd to modern ears; but it should be remembered that at Athens the defendant in a di/kh fo/nou always had the option of going into voluntary exile before the court passed sentence. Hence it was possible to speak of “disregarding the sentence impo

Rest assured that I should never have come to Athens, had such a crime been on my conscience. I am here, as it is, because I have faith in justice, the most precious ally of the man who has no deed of sin upon his conscience and who has committed no transgression against the gods. Often at such an hour as this, when the body has given up the struggle, its salvation is the spirit, which is ready to fight on in the conscience that it is innocent. On the other hand, he whose conscience is guilty has no worse enemy than that conscience; for his spirit fails him which his body is still unwearied, because it feels that what is approaching him is the punishment of his iniquities. But it is with no such guilty conscience that I come before you.
