[7] I ask you, therefore, gentlemen, to protect me, reflecting that it is a greater injury to be accused of killing one's father than of having cast one's shield. I, for one, would rather admit to having thrown away any number than to entertaining such thoughts regarding my father. Yet I have seen this man acting in the way that you know, while I myself saved my shield. So on what ground should I fail to get redress from him?
