While the clerk is finding the statute, men
, I wish to address a few
words to you. I appeal to all of you jurymen, in the name of Zeus and all the
gods, that whatever you hear in court, you may listen to it with this in your
minds: What would one of you do, if he were the victim of this treatment, and
what anger would he feel on his own account against the author of it? Seriously
distressed as I was at the insults that I endured in the discharge of my public
service, I am far more seriously distressed and indignant at what ensued.
