1 The term ἀδικεῖν seems to be used in this context to describe the milder breaches of the law, and is used in the same sense by Aristot. Ath. Pol. 54.2, where κλέπτειν, δῶρα, λαμβάνειν and ἀδικεῖν are distinguished as punishable with a tenfold fine, a tenfold fine, and a simple fine respectively. Dinarchus is misleading when he refers （Din. 1.60） to a double fine. A simple fine was doubled only when it was not paid up within a fixed time.
2 Conon is perhaps the banker to whom Dinarchus refers （Din. 1.43）, and the incident which he mentions later in the speech （i. 56） is possibly the same as that to which Hyperides is alluding here, though according to Dinarchus it was the Areopagus who accused the culprit. Compare Din. 1.56, note. The story of Aristomachus is not known.
