[44] You have never even transported to the Acropolis the dedications upon which Menexenus (I.)1 expended three talents and which his death prevented him from setting up, but they are still knocking about in the sculptor's workshop; and thus, while you yourself claimed the possession of money to which you had no title, you never rendered up to the gods statues which were theirs by right.

1 If the text is correct, the reference must be to Menexenus I.; but in that case, it would have been the duty of Dicaeogenes II. to set up the statues after his father's death.
