[18] Aristogiton could not claim one of these qualifications for himself. So far from treating his parents well this man has ill-treated his own father. When you were all serving in the army he was in prison; and, far from being able to point to any memorial of his father, Athenians, he did not give him a proper funeral even in Eretria where he died.1 While other Athenians are contributing from their own purses this man has not even paid up all the money to defray the public debts which he incurred.
