λέγε δὴ αὐτὴν τὴν πρόκλησιν, ἣν προὐκαλούμην ἐγὼ Στέφανον τουτονί.“Πρόκλησις

τάδε προὐκαλεῖτο Ἀπολλόδωρος Στέφανον περὶ ὧν τὴν γραφὴν γέγραπται Νέαιραν, ξένην οὖσαν ἀστῷ συνοικεῖν, ἕτοιμος ὢν τὰς θεραπαίνας παραλαμβάνειν τὰς Νεαίρας, ἃς ἐκ Μεγάρων ἔχουσα ἦλθεν, Θρᾷτταν καὶ Κοκκαλίνην, καὶ ἃς ὕστερον παρὰ Στεφάνῳ ἐκτήσατο, Ξεννίδα καὶ Δροσίδα, τὰς εἰδυίας ἀκριβῶς περὶ τῶν παίδων τῶν ὄντων Νεαίρᾳ, ὅτι οὐκ ἐκ Στεφάνου εἰσίν, Πρόξενός τε τελευτήσας καὶ Ἀρίστων νῦν ὢν καὶ Ἀντιδωρίδης σταδιοδρομῶν καὶ Φανώ, ἐφ᾽ τε βασανίσαι αὐτάς. καὶ εἰ μὲν ὁμολογοῖεν ἐκ Στεφάνου εἶναι καὶ Νεαίρας τούτους τοὺς παῖδας, πεπρᾶσθαι Νέαιραν κατὰ τοὺς νόμους καὶ τοὺς παῖδας ξένους εἶναι: εἰ δὲ μὴ ὁμολογοῖεν ἐκ ταύτης εἶναι αὐτοὺς ἀλλ᾽ ἐξ ἑτέρας γυναικὸς ἀστῆς, ἀφίστασθαι τοῦ ἀγῶνος ἤθελον τοῦ Νεαίρας, καὶ εἴ τι ἐκ τῶν βασάνων βλαφθείησαν αἱ ἄνθρωποι, ἀποτίνειν τι βλαβείησαν.”
