As witnesses against me to attest the citation, he entered the name of his own brother, this Arethusius to whom these slaves belong, and another person; and they were prepared, in the event of my bringing to a preliminary hearing the suits which I had entered against my relatives1 who were wronging me, to lay an information against me, as being a debtor to the treasury, and throw me into prison.

1 The reference is to his law-suits with Phormion and Stephanus; see Dem. 36, Dem. 45 and Dem. 46.
