There are many strong proofs from which one can see that the
defendant Phormio is not in the wrong; but the strongest of all, in my opinion,
is this: that Pasicles, though he is the brother of Apollodorus, the plaintiff,
has neither entered suit nor made any of the charges which the plaintiff makes.
But surely the defendant would not have abstained from wronging one who had been
left a minor by his father, and over whose property he had control, since he had
been left as his guardian, yet would have wronged you, who at your father's
death were left a man of four and twenty, and who on your own behalf would
easily and immediately have obtained justice, if any wrong had been done you.
That is impossible.
To prove that I am speaking
the truth in this, and that Pasicles makes no complaint, take, please, the
deposition regarding the matter.“
