[5] As all grounds for suspecting that the crime was unpremeditated are removed, it is clear from the circumstances of death themselves that the victim was deliberately murdered.1 Now who is more likely to have attacked him than a man who had already suffered cruelly at his hands and who was expecting to suffer more cruelly still? That man is the defendant. He was an old enemy of the other, and indicted him on several serious charges without success.

1 Here, as elsewhere in the Tetralogies, the Greek has to be expanded in translating in order to make the connection of thought clear. For an explanation of the words αὐτὸς θάνατος, “circumstances of death” see Antiph. 2.2.4 note 1.
