[47] For no fine can be inflicted for denunciations made to the archon, even if the informants fail to receive a single vote,1 and there are no deposits or court fees2 paid in any impeachments; but while the prosecutors may bring an impeachment without running any risk, extreme penalties are inflicted on those who are convicted in such impeachments.

1 The prosecutor in other public actions was liable to a fine of 1000 drachmas if he failed to obtain one-fifth of the votes.

2 πρυτανεῖα, deposits made by both parties in a suit and repayable to the successful litigant: παράστασις, fees payable by a prosecutor on entering upon certain suits.
