[8] But I desire first to ask some questions. He has deposed that he married his sister to a man who possessed a fortune of three talents; what dowry does he allege that he gave with her? Next, did this wedded wife leave her husband during his lifetime or quit his house after his death?1 And from whom did the defendant recover his sister's dowry after the death of him to whom he has deposed that he gave her in marriage?

1 A widow might either remain in her late husband's house, if there were no children, or return to the house of her legal representative (κύριος), and, through him, obtain the return of her dowry or the payment of interest upon it for her maintenance.
