[45] I will, however, pass over all those things, and will mention not one which I consider you ought to hear, as being a sure proof of his brazen-faced audacity. In Corinth, where he arrived after our battle with the enemy and the expedition to Coronea1 he fought with the taxiarch2 Laches and gave him a beating; and when the citizens had set forth in full military strength, he was specially noted for insubordination and knavery, and was the only Athenian ordered by the generals to be banned by herald.

1 At the battle of Coronea in 394 B.C. the Athenians and Thebans fought the Spartans commanded by Agesilaus.

2 The officer commanding an infantry contingent front one of the ten tribes. Cf. Dem. 54.5.
