When I had entered the council, perhaps a little too impetuously—the other pylagori had withdrawn1—and when I was just beginning to speak, one of the Amphissians, a scurrilous fellow, and, as I plainly saw, a man of no education whatever, but perhaps also led on to folly by some divine visitation, cried out, “O Greeks, if you were in your right mind, you would not have so much as named the name of the people of Athens in these sacred days, hut you would have debarred them from the shrine, as men polluted.”

1 It would appear that the debate was over and the voting members, the hieromnemons,alone remained, when Aeschines rushed in and began to speak.
