[68] Or again,—let us suppose this to happen,—what if Alexander, in pursuance of Demosthenes' decree,1 sends and asks us for the gold brought into the country by Harpalus, and, over and above the fact that the council has made a report, sends down here the slaves which have now been returned to him and asks us to find out the truth from them; what in Heaven's name shall we say, gentlemen?
