these facts have been so convincingly established, there is no further need, I
think, of more words. For when I am able to produce both laws and witnesses in
support of everything that I have said, and also admissions made in my favor by
my opponent himself, what further need can there be for a long argument?
However, if Spudias perchance waxes indignant about the marriage portion and
maintains that he is being defrauded to the amount of one thousand drachmae, he
will be lying. For, while he disputes my claim to this sum, he has received not
less, but more, as will presently be made clear to you.
