For not only did Stephanus seek in this way to bring us to ruin, but he even wished to drive Apollodorus from his country. He brought a false charge against him that, having once gone to Aphidna1 in search of a runaway slave of his, he had there struck a woman, and that she had died of the blow; and he suborned some slaves and got them to give out that they were men of Cyren,2 and by public proclamation cited Apollodorus before the court of the Palladium3 on a charge of murder.

1 Aphidna, a deme of the tribe Aeantis.

2 An important city in Libya in Northern Africa.

3 For the court of the Palladium, see note b on Dem. 47.70. In the case alluded to an ordinary court of five hundred jurors seems to have sat in the place of the Ephetae (see note a on Dem. 43.57.).
