Lampis, men of Athens
, was close at hand when I did this, yet he never
ventured to say that he had received the money from Phormio, nor did he say, as
he naturally would have done supposing his story to be true,
“Chrysippus, you are mad. Why do you summon this man? He has paid me
the money.” And not only did Lampis not say a word, but neither did
Phormio himself venture to say anything, although Lampis was standing by his
side, to whom he now declares he had paid the money.
