call the witnesses.“
”What do you imagine were the prayers
offered by Philip when he made libation? Or by the Thebans? Surely they implored
strength and victory for themselves and their allies, weakness and defeat for
the allies of the Phocians. In that prayer Aeschines joined. He invoked a curse
on his own fatherland. It is for you to make that curse recoil upon his own
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.
