2 XIII. p. 611 D.
3 The substance of his view, as explained in an essay, Unachtheit der Rede des Lysias gegen den Sokratiker Aeschines, is given by Sauppe, O. A. II. p. 170.
4 Besides this fragment — to which Athenaeos (XIII. p. 611 D) gives the title, πρὸς Αἰσχίνην τὸν Σωκρατικὸν χρεώς—two others are cited by the lexicographers; viz. (1) κατ᾽ Αἰσχίνου περὶ τῆς δημεύσεως τῶν Ἀριστοφάνους χρημάτων: Harpokr. s. v. Χύτροι: and (2) πρὸς Αἰσχίνην βλάβης: Bekker anecd. p. 132, 23. Sauppe thinks that neither of the two latter was against the Sokratic. Aeschines was one of the commonest names. Diogenes Laertius (II. 64) mentions eight bearers of the name who were all more or less distinguished. The speech περὶ συκοφαντίας which Diogenes notices in the same chapter as having been written by Lysias against the Sokratic Aeschines is very likely that from which our fragment comes: see its opening words—νομίζω δ᾽ οὐκ ἂν ῥᾳδίως αὐτὸν ἑτέραν ταύτης (δίκην) συκοφαντωδεστέραν ἐξευρεῖν.
