It happened, men of the jury, that Euxitheus of Cholleidae,1 who is here in court and is a relative of mine, and with him Meidias, on their way back from a dinner somewhere, came up to me, when I was now near my home, followed after me as I was borne to the bath, and were present when men brought the surgeon. I was so weak, that, as it was far for me to be carried from the bath to my home, those who were with me decided to carry me to the house of Meidias for that night; and so they did.

Now let the clerk take the depositions establishing these facts, that you may understand that a host of people know what outrage I suffered at the hands of these men.“ Depositions

Take now the deposition of the surgeon also.“ Deposition

1 Cholleidae, a deme of the tribe Leontis.
