To prove the truth of my statement, please call the
witnesses.“Witnesses[We, Callias of Sunium, Zeno of Phlya, Cleon of Phalerum, Demonicus of
Marathon, on behalf of all the councillors, bear witness for Demosthenes
that, when the people elected Aeschines state-advocate before the
Amphictyons in the matter of the temple at Delos, we in Council judged Hypereides more worthy to speak
on behalf of the state, and Hypereides was accordingly
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
