Men of Athens, recall the actions of Andocides, and reflect too on the festival1 which has brought you special honor from the majority of mankind. But indeed you have become so stupefied by now with his offences, from your frequent sight and hearing of them, that monstrous things no longer seem to you monstrous. But apply your minds to the task of making your thought envisage the things that he did, and you will come to a better decision.

1 The Mysteries, in which the present judges had been initiated.
