The defendant and Therippides paid me thirty-one minae, and
they compute that they have paid eighteen minae in taxes. I will go beyond them
and will make this sum thirty minae, that they may have not a word to say in
protest. Well, then, if you take away one talent from the eight, seven are left,
which, according to their own admissions of receipts, they must necessarily have
in their possession. This sum, then, even if they rob me of everything else and
deny that they have it, they ought at least to have paid me, seeing that they
admit having received it from my estate.
