[28] You would do a monstrous thing if, after granting in the past to Aristarchus,1 the destroyer of the democracy and afterwards the betrayer of Oenoe to your enemies the Thebans, a day in which to defend himself as he pleased, and allowing him all his other rights under the law,—if, I say, you shall now deprive the generals, who have done everything to your satisfaction, and have defeated the enemy, of these same rights.

1 In 411 B.C. Aristarchus helped to establish the short-lived oligarchical government of the Four Hundred.
