You are the people who, for crimes far smaller than those
Demosthenes has committed, have inflicted on men severe and irrevocable
penalties. It was you who killed Menon the miller, because he kept a free boy
from Pellene in his mill. You
punished with death Themistius of Aphidna, because he assaulted the Rhodian lyre-player at the
Eleusinian festival, and Euthymachus, because he put the Olynthian girl in a
Dinarchus. Minor Attic Orators in two volumes, 2, with an English translation by J. O. Burtt, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1962.
