[6] [Or ought you to spare the defendant on account of his ancestry and his moderation, or because he has done you many public and private services?]1 What information do you lack that makes you ask for arguments against the defendant here before you? What if we, the accusers, all ten of us, use up all the water in our clocks and proclaim that it is a terrible thing to release men who have been caught with bribes against the city in their very hands; will that make the council's report against Aristogiton true and just?

1 This sentence was excluded from the text by Bekker. It is out of place in the argument here and its substance is given at the beginning of Din. 2.8.
