This Strato, acting as arbitrator, when the
appointed day arrived and all the legal delays had been
exhausted—counter-pleas, demurrers, and the rest of them—and
there was not a trick left, at first begged me to abandon the arbitration, and
then to postpone it till the next day, and at the last, as I continued to refuse
and Meidias did not appear in court, and it was getting late, he gave his
decision against him.
