ἅπαντα τὰ δικαστήρια viz. (1) the Areiopagus, (2) τὸ ἐπὶ Παλλαδίῳ, for accidental homicide, (3) τὸ ἐν Φρεαττοῖ, when a man already banished for an accidental homicide is tried anew for murder, (4) τὸ ἐπὶ Δελφινίῳ, for homicide where justification is pleaded, (5) τὸ ἐπὶ Πρυτανείῳ, when an inanimate object had caused death. In the last four courts the ἐφέται judged. Cp. Hermann Antiq. I. § 104.

τοῦτο δὲ δέον σε The apodosis would probably have been ἀνώμοτος μέν...κατηγορεῖς, at the beginning of § 12: but owing to the length of the sentence the construction is interrupted, and § 12 begins with (instead of ταῦτα) σὺ παρελθών.
