So as for me, not even when they had control of the government, shall I be found guilty of any such misdeed; yet Callimachus says that he was wronged after the Thirty had been expelled, the Piraeus had been taken, and when the democracy was in power, and the terms of reconciliation were being discussed.

1 For the crimes of the Thirty see the vivid account by Lysias in his speech Against Eratosthenes.
