Hyperides, Against Athenogenes, section 29 (search)
During the war against Philip he left the city just before the battle and did not serve with you at Chaeronea. Instead, he moved to Troezen, disregarding the lawThis law, which is not mentioned by any other writer appears to be the same as the one subsequently read out (§ 33) which forbade resident aliens to emigrate in time of war. It is not clear, however, why the clause quoted here should relate to an attempted return on the part of the lawbreaker rather than to his actual departure. If t Chaeronea, but is attempting to impose on the ignorance of his hearers. which says that a man who moves in wartime shall be indicted and summarily arrested if he returns.

Remembering, after more than a hundred and fifty years,The Athenians sent women and children to Troezen before the battle of Salamis. (See Cic. de Offic. 3. 11.48.) Hence we have a rough terminus post quem for the speech. the help they gave you against the barbarian, you felt that when men had been of service to you in times of danger you should protect when men had been of service to you in times of danger you should protect them in their misfortune. But this abandoned wretch, who forsook you and was enrolled at Troezen, engaged in nothing that was worthy either of the constitution or the spirit of that city. He treated those who had welcomed him so cruelly that . . . in the Assembly . . . fled.The sense appears to be, as Colin suggests, that he was accused in the Assemhly of the Troezenians, and, fearing punishment, fled back to Athe
