[58] Personally I know no help to equal this. He deserves your anger for this conduct and for his explanation too, since he has not hesitated to tell a blatant lie. For he never previously carried on this trade, being in fact a master smith; and subsequently, after his departure, he imported nothing to us from Megara, though he was away for six years without a break. Besides, he had, as it happens, an interest in the two per cent tax,1 which he would never have left to live abroad on business. So if he says a word about these matters, I do not doubt that you will stop him.

1 For the two per cent tax see Lyc. 1.19 and note.
