[64] But when Aristolochus was ruined and lost his property, chiefly through having been plundered by this fellow and others of his stamp, Stephanus never stood by the son of Aristolochus, who was overburdened with lawsuits, nor aided him, but it was Apolexis1 or Solon or anybody else that helped him rather than he. Then he has courted Phormio and become intimate with him, choosing him out of all the Athenians; and he sailed to Byzantium2 as agent in his interest, when the Byzantines detained Phormio's vessels, and he pleaded his cause against the Calchedonians,3 and he has thus flagrantly given false witness against me.

1 Apolexis is a not unfamiliar name (see e.g. Dem. 43.48), but of the Apolexis or the Solon here mentioned nothing is known.

2 Byzantium, the modern Istanbul.

3 Calchedon is a town on the east side of the Bosporus, opposite Byzantium.
