[40] On his return to Athens he found a commission already appointed to investigate, and a reward of one hundred minae offered for information1; so seeing Euphemus, the brother of Callias, son of Telocles, sitting in his smithy, he took him to the temple of Hephaestus. Then, after describing, as I have described to you, how he had seen us on the night in question, he said that he would rather take our money than the state's, as he would thereby avoid making enemies of us. Euphemus thanked Diocleides for confiding in him. “And now,” he added, “be good enough to come to Leogoras' house, so that you and I can see Andocides and the others who must be consulted.”

1 i.e. the second, larger reward proposed by Peisander (Andoc. 1.27).
