[58] Do not throw this away, nor suffer this abominable fellow to destroy it; do not establish a shameful precedent, that it is permitted by you that rascals and sycophants should take the property of those who are active in business and who lead well-ordered lives.

For you see for yourselves, and you hear from the witnesses, what a friend he shows himself to be to those in need.
