[26] For if you look at each matter severally, you will find that Theophemus was wholly in the wrong, and that this is not merely a statement of mine but a fact decided by vote of the senate and the court. For when I had received his name from the magistrate, I approached him and first demanded the ship's equipment; when he refused to give it back on my making this statement, I subsequently fell in with him near the Hermes1 which stands by the little gate and summoned him before the despatching board and the overseers of the dockyards; for it was they who at that time brought into court suits regarding ship's equipments.

1 This Hermes, dedicated by the nine archons in 493-492, stood near the Ἀστικὸς Πυλών, or City Gate, of the north fortification wall of the Peiraeus. See Judeich, Topographie von Athen 2, pp. 152 f.
