His father was Demosthenes of Paeania, a free man, for there is no need of lying. But how the case stands as to his inheritance from his mother and his maternal grandfather, I will tell you. There was a certain Gylon of Cerameis. This man betrayed Nymphaeum in the Pontus to the enemy, for the place at that time belonged to our city.1 He was impeached and became an exile from the city, not awaiting trial. He came to Bosporus2 and there received as a present from the tyrants of the land a place called “the Gardens.”

1 Nymphaeum was a port of the Tauric Chersonese.

2 The Cimmerian Bosporus; the chief city was Panticapeum, the modern Kertch.
