Such is the shamelessness of these men. Now, men of the jury, take thought in your own minds, whether you ever knew or heard of any people importing wine by way of trade from Pontus to Athens, and especially Coan wine. The very opposite is, of course, the case. Wine is carried to Pontus from places around us, from Peparethus, and Cos, and Thasos1 and Mendê, and from all sorts of other places; whereas the things imported here from Pontus are quite different.

1 Peparethus, Cos, and Thasos were all islands in the Aegean.
