Now, in their previous prosecution, among other lying charges that they made against my father, they stated that Phrynichus1 was a relation of his. Well, let anyone, if he pleases, bear witness, in the time allowed for my speech, that there was kinship with Phrynichus. But, of course, their accusation was a lie. Nor, indeed, was he a friend of his by upbringing; for Phrynichus was a poor man, and kept sheep in the fields, while my father was being educated in town.

1 An active member of the oligarchy of Four Hundred (411 B.C.); cf. Lys. 13.70, Against Agoratus.
