This popular leader of yours, Athenians, who has imposed on himself a sentence of death should he be proved to have taken even the smallest sum from Harpalus, has been clearly convicted of taking bribes from those very men whom he formerly professed to oppose. Much has already been said by Stratocles1 and most of the charges have now been made; as regards the report itself the Areopagus has expressed opinions which are both just and true, while with events succeeding this Stratocles has already dealt and read the decrees relating to them.

1 Stratocles the orator, who proposed that special honors should be paid to Lycurgus after his death (Plut. Vit. Lyc. 852 A), may possibly be the same man as the general of that name who served at Chaeronea.
