I think, therefore,
that neither Stephanus himself nor anyone on his behalf will succeed in proving
that the charges and the testimony are false—that, in short, this
Neaera is an Athenian woman. But I hear that he is going to set up some such
defense as this—that he is keeping her, not as a wife, but as a
mistress, and that the children are not hers, but were born to him by another
woman, an Athenian and a relative of his, whom he will assert that he married at
a earlier date.
