To prove that my words are true, that after
Aesius had given his testimony with the other witnesses, he made no denial of
the fact, when, standing by the plaintiff's side in the courtroom, he heard the
deposition read, and that, when I offered the slave to them to be questioned by
torture regarding all these matters, he refused to accept the
offer—regarding each of these points severally I shall produce
witnesses. Please call them here.“
Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by A. T. Murray, Ph.D., LL.D. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1939.
