I have, then,
shown you in my argument, and the testimony of witnesses has proved: that Neaera
was originally a slave, that she was twice sold, that she made her living by
prostitution as a courtesan; that she ran away from Phrynion to Megara, and that
on her return she was forced to give bonds as an alien before the polemarch. I
wish now to show you that Stephanus here has himself given evidence against her,
proving her to be an alien.
