[5] but now let me tell you how I have treated you,1 as distinct from private persons, in the conduct of this dispute. As long as the relatives of Erasiphon were contesting this property, I claimed the whole as mine, because Erasistratus lost his case when he pleaded against my father's suit for the whole debt; and for the last three years I have let out the property at Sphettus,2 but over the property at Cicynna3 and the house there I was at law with the occupiers. Last year, however, they got my suit quashed by alleging that they were sea-traders4; but at present, although I was permitted to bring proceedings in the month of Gamelion,5 the nautical court has not decided the case.

1 The jury are addressed as representing the State.

2 A township of the tribe Acamantis in the south of Attica.

3 A township of the tribe Acamantis in the south of Attica.

4 As such they could only be tried before a nautical court.

5 December-January.
