[20] Shall I be told that, after having performed none of these duties, he administered Nicostratus's property?1 Evidence of these facts, too, has been given you, and even he himself does not deny most of them. Makeshift excuses have, of course, been found to explain all his acts; for what other resource remains to one who expressly admits the facts?

1 This sentence is apparently parenthetic and ironical. There is a further reference in Isaeus 4.26 to certain business relations between Nicostratus and Chariades.
