Again after this, men of Athens, Simus the Thessalian came here with the defendant Neaera for the great Panathenaea.1 Nicaretê came with her, and they lodged with Ctesippus son of Glauconides,of Cydantidae2; and the defendant Neaera drank and dined with them in the presence of many men, as any courtesan would do.

1 The Great Panathenaea was celebrated in Athens every fifth year in the month Hecatombaeon (July).

2 Cydantidae, a deme of the tribe Aegeïs.
