To prove that these statements of mine are true, I will bring before you as witnesses the members of the Brytid gens who were present.“Witnesses

Timostratus of Hecalê, Xanthippus of Eroeadae, Evalces of Phalerum, Anytus of Laciadae, Euphranor of Aegilia and Nicippus of Cephalê,1 depose that both they and Phrastor of Aegilia are members of the gens called Brytidae, and that, when Phrastor claimed the right to introduce a son of his into the gens, they, on their part, knowing that Phrastor's son was born of the daughter of Neaera, would not suffer Phrastor to introduce his son.”

1 Hecalê, a deme of the tribe Leontis, Laciadae of the tribe Oeneïs, and Cephalê of the tribe Acamantis.
