I earnestly beg you, men of Athens, to bear in mind throughout this trial that, if
Aeschines had not gone outside the articles of indictment in his denunciation of
me, I too would not have digressed; but as he has resorted to every sort of

Demosthenes. Demosthenes with an English translation by C. A. Vince, M. A. and J. H. Vince, M.A. Cambridge, MA, Harvard University Press; London, William Heinemann Ltd. 1926.
