§§ 54—55. This spurious docu- ment once passed for the “single undoubtedly genuine Athenian indictment.” Chaerondas was archon in 338—337 B.C.; but the indictment was brought in the spring of 336. The γραφὴ παρανόμων came before the θεσμοθέται, not before the Chief Archon.

The expression τραγῳδοῖς καινοῖς, § 54.8, on the day of the new tragedians, i.e. when new tragedies were performed, is confirmed by τοῖς τραγῳδοῖς, Aesch. III. 45. In § 55.6 τραγῳδῶν τῇ καινῇ is probably corrupt.

See note on the spurious προβού- λευμα of Ctesiphon in § 118.
