[13] First of all, when you made your alliance with the Boeotians, and we had to go to the relief of Haliartus,1 I had been enrolled by Orthobulus for service in the cavalry: I saw that it was everyoneÕs opinion that, whereas the cavalry were assured of safety, the infantry would have to face danger; so, while others mounted on horseback illegally, without having passed the scrutiny, I went up to Orthobulus and told him to strike me off the roll, as I thought it shameful, while the majority were to face danger, to take the field with precaution for my own security. Come forward, please, Orthobulus.“Testimony
