[6] In the first place, then, I shall bring before you as witnesses those who were present when Polyeuctus betrothed his daughter to me with a portion of forty minae; then I shall prove that what I received was less by a thousand drachmae; and further that Polyeuctus always admitted that he was in my debt, and that he introduced to me Leocrates as guarantor1; and that at his death he directed by his will that pillars should be set up on the house in my favor for a thousand drachmae due on account of my wife's portion.

Please call the witnesses.“ Witnesses
