Moeriades was not without resources and that my father did not act foolishly in
making the contract with him about the slaves, I will show you by the clearest
proof. For after Aphobus took into his own hands the factory as you have
yourselves heard from the witnesses, when it was his duty as my guardian to
prevent anyone else from advancing money on the same security, he himself loaned
to Moeriades on the security of these same slaves the sum of five hundred
drachmae, which he admits he has duly recovered from him in full.
