This man who fraternizes, as he
will presently tell you, with our allies, behaved very differently; he would not
part with any of the money which he had received for their protection. Remember
these things, gentlemen; consider the disasters caused by traitors in the
downfall of Olynthus and of
Thebes; decide wisely now in
your interest; destroy those who are ready to take bribes against their country
and so rest your hopes of safety on yourselves and on the gods.
Dinarchus. Minor Attic Orators in two volumes, 2, with an English translation by J. O. Burtt, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1962.
