[28] My opponent, however, has come to such a pitch of audacity as to declare that my father made feast for him on the tenth day.1 And in regard to this he has put in depositions of Timocrates2 and Promachus alone, who are in no way related to my father, and were not friends of his. The testimony they have borne is so patently false, that, whereas you all know that Boeotus by instituting proceedings forced my father against his will to acknowledge him these men, like witnesses to a summons—and only two of them—depose that he made a feast for this fellow on the tenth day!

1 See the Introduction to the preceding oration.

2 Perhaps to be identified with the Timocrates against whom Demosthenes delivered Oration 24 (Dem. 24).
