[113] For if anyone says that even these men deserved no honor, let him say who does deserve it, if there is no one either before or after them. If he shall say "no one," I should be very sorry for our city, if no one in the course of its history has proved worthy of reward. Again, if while admitting their merit he points out that they got nothing by it, assuredly he accuses the city of ingratitude. But that is not the truth or anything like it; but whenever a man maliciously gives a wrong twist to his arguments, I think they must appear hateful.
