[147] They have held countless commands, and have won you many a victory over your foes on land and sea. They have held countless other offices and handled public monies; yet not once have they been found guilty of fraud. We have not wronged you, and you have not wronged us.

Yet never once has any member of my family appeared on trial before you and asked you to show your gratitude for these services.
