Now, as for Thrasybulus, men of Athens,—for there is no need to say more about him,—he did well to end his life as he did1: for it was not right for him either to live in the prosecution of such schemes or to suffer death at your hands with his repute of having served you well in the past, but rather to settle his account with the city in that sort of way.
1 He was killed in a riot at Aspendus, 389-388 B.C.
