[40] Phrynion, however, learned that the woman was in Athens, and was living with Stephanus, and taking some young men with him he came to the house of Stephanus and attempted to carry her off. When Stephanus took her away from him, as the law allowed, declaring her to be a free woman, Phrynion required her to post bonds with the polemarch.1

To prove that this statement is true, I will bring before you as a witness to these facts the man himself who was polemarch at the time.

Please call Aeetes of Ceiriadae.2Deposition

Aeetes of Ceiriadae deposes that while he was polemarch, Neaera, the present defendant, was required by Phrynion, the brother of Demochares, to post bonds, and that the sureties of Neaera were Stephanus of Eroeadae,3 Glaucetes of Cephisia,4 and Aristocrates of Phalerum.5

1 That is, until her status, as free woman or slave, should be determined.

2 Ceiriadae, a deme of the tribe Hippothontis.

3 Eroeadae, a deme of the tribe Hippothontis.

4 Cephisia, a deme of the tribe Erectheïs.

5 Phalerum, a deme of the tribe Aeantis.
