[19] These men, who are here in court, using the challenge as a screen, deposed to a will in such a way that the jurymen believed this will to be my father's, and I was debarred from obtaining a hearing regarding my wrongs, but in such a way also that they on their part would most clearly be convicted of having given false testimony. And yet this was the very opposite of what they intended.

However, that you may know that I am speaking the truth in this, take the deposition of Cephisophon.“Deposition

Cephisophon, son of Cephalion, of Aphidna,1 deposes that a document was left him by his father, on which was inscribed “the will of Pasio.””

1 Aphidna was a deme of the tribe Aeantis.
