Take the deposition itself, and read it, please, that from its very language I may prove my point.

Read; and do you check the water.“Deposition

Stephanus, son of Menecles, of Acharnae, Endius, son of Epigenes, of Lamptrae, Scythes, son of Harmateus, of Cydathenaeum1 depose that they were present before the arbitrator Teisias, of Acharnae, when Phormio challenged Apollodorus, if he declared that the document which Phormio put into the box was not a copy of the will of Pasio, to open the will of Pasio, which Amphias, brother-in-law of Cephisophon, submitted to the arbitrator; and that Apollodorus refused to open it; and that the document in question was a copy of the will of Pasio.”

1 Acharnae was a deme of the tribe Oeneïs, Lamptrae of the tribe Erectheïs, and Cydathenaeum of the tribe Pandionis.
