Only consider Andocides' own life since he committed his impiety, and judge if there is any other man to compare with him. For Andocides, when after his offence he was brought before the court by a summary citation,1 committed himself to prison, having assessed2 the penalty at imprisonment if he failed to hand over his attendant:

1 ἐξ ἐπιβολῆς (if Taylor's conjecture is correct) must imply“as a result of a fine summarily inflicted” (by the archons); cf. Lys. 30.3.

2 A defendant could propose a penalty as an alternative to that proposed by the plaintiff, and the judges had to vote for one or the other penalty.
