[113] For what man dwelt beyond their reach? What man was so far removed from public life that he was not forced into close touch with the disasters into which such creatures plunged us? But in the face of all this, these men, who brought their own cities to such a pitch of anarchy, do not blush to make unjust charges against our city; nay, to crown their other effronteries, they even have the audacity to talk of the private and public suits which were once tried in Athens, when they themselves put to death without trial more men1 in the space of three months than Athens tried during the whole period of her supremacy.

1 In Athens 1500, according to Isoc. 7.67; Isoc. 20.11.
