κακοῦργος On the strength of the information (ἔνδειξις κακουργίας) laid against him, he was arrested by the Eleven (ἀπαγωγήν, § 9: ἀπήχθην, § 85). The same summary procedure (instead of the ordinary γραφὴ φόνου) was taken against the murderers of Phrynichus in 411 B.C. (Lycurg. In Leocr. § 12) and against Agoratus (Lys. In Agorat. § 85). The speaker here seems to have been treated harshly, but not, as he alleges, illegally.
