Do you realize that, awkward
though the arrival of Harpalus was, it has been an advantage to the city in one
respect, because it has given you a sure means of testing those who give up
everything to the enemies of Athens
for a payment of silver or gold? Do not be lax, Athenians, or weary of punishing
the guilty; purge the city of bribery to the utmost of your ability. Do not ask
for arguments from me when you see that the crimes have been plainly attributed
to those whom the council has reported.
