Gentlemen of the jury, all this long story is intended
for you, and for that circle of hearers outside the barrier. For this
contemptible fellow, I have a short, plain, and sufficient answer. Aeschines, if
the future was revealed to you and to nobody else, you should have given us the
benefit of your predictions when we were deliberating; if you had no
foreknowledge, you are open to the charge of ignorance just like the rest of us.
Then what better right have you to denounce me than I to denounce you?
