[6] When these transactions had been completed in the month of Elaphebolion in the archonship of Theophilus,1 I at once sailed away for Pontus, but the plaintiff and Evergus remained here. What transactions they had with one another while I was away, I cannot state, for they do not tell the same story, nor is the plaintiff always consistent with himself; sometimes he says that he was forcibly ousted from his leasehold by Evergus in violation of the agreement; sometimes that Evergus was the cause of his being inscribed as a debtor to the state;2 sometimes anything else that he chooses to say.

1 That is, in March 347 B.C.
