[46] Do you claim acquital on the ground that you have proved yourself a good soldier? But you never served at all in the whole course of the long and critical war, during which the Olynthians and the islanders are dying fighting against the foe in the defence of our land,1 but you, Dicaeogenes, though you were an Athenian citizen, have never served at all. Perhaps you will claim an advantage over me for the sake of your forefathers, because they slew the tyrant?2 I pay them all due homage, but I do not think that you have any share of their valor.

1 Probably in the Corinthian War (394-386 B.C.).

2 Hipparchus.
