[42] Then there was the second man.1 He had travelled on the same boat as I: had been present throughout the voyage: and had been constantly in my company. When tortured in the same way, he confirmed the first and last statements of the other as true; for he declared me innocent from start to finish. On the other hand, the assertions made by the other upon the wheel, made not because they were the truth, but because they were wrung from him, he contradicted. Thus, while the one said that it was not until I had left the boat that I killed Herodes, and that he had himself helped me to remove the body after the murder, the other maintained that I did not leave the boat at all.

1 The ἐλεύθερος of Antiph. 5.49. Since he is tortured, he cannot have been born a Greek. For further details as to both witnesses see Antiph. 5.29 note 3.
