Aeschines, how the statute expressly makes an exception: “persons
named in any decree of the Council or the Assembly always excepted. They are to
be proclaimed.” Then why this miserable pettifogging? Why these
insincere arguments? Why do you not try hellebore for your complaint? Are you
not ashamed to prosecute for spite, not for crime; misquoting this statute,
curtailing that statute, when they ought to be read in their entirety to a jury
sworn to vote according to their direction?
