τούτου Apollodorus.

διαλύσας κ. παραδοὺς κ.τ.λ. ‘Having duly paid and delivered up everything——and having thereafter received a discharge from all further claims.’ For διαλύειν τι, cf. 20 § 12 κοινῇ διαλῦσαι τα χρήματα, 28 § 2; 29 § 7; 41 § 8. For another construction διαλύειν τινά, cf. § 50.

ἀφεθεὶςἐγκλημάτων Or. 45 §§ 5, 40; Lys. 3. 25 ἐφειμένους τῶν ἐγκλημάτων, Isaeus 5 § 1 ἀφήκαμεν ἀλλήλους τῶν ἐγκλημάτων.

ἐπειδὴ φέρειν τοῦτον οὐχ οἶός τ᾽ έστί i.e. since (or, at a time when) Phormion cannot submit any longer to the unconscionable claims of Apollodorus (and therefore declines to make any further concessions), the latter has vexatiously instituted the present action. The subject of the subordinate clause appears to be Phormion. (Rueger, however, makes Apollodorus the subject, and Phormion the object.) For the sense, compare the language ascribed to Apollodorus in § 33 μίσθωσιν ἤθελεν αὐτῷ φέρειν Φορμίων πολλήν .. ἐπεὶ δ᾽ οὐ ποιεῖ ταῦτα, τηνικαῦτα, φησί, δικάζομαι, and especially Or. 45 § 5 ἐπειδὴ ποιεῖν τ᾽ οὐδὲν ᾤετο δεῖν ὧν τόθ᾽ ὡμολόγησε, καὶ τὰ χρήματ᾽ ἀποστερεῖν ἐνεχείρησεν τῆς τραπέζης εἶχεν ἀφορμήν, δίκην ἠναγκάσθην λαχεῖν. For φέρειν cf. 21 § 197 ὃν...οὐ φίλοι δύνανται φέρειν.—For δίκην λαχὼν, cf. Or. 54 § 1, ἔλαχον δίκην n.

συκοφαντεῖ Cf. Or 55 § 1 n. ——πραχθέντα τούτῳ, Or. 34 § 36 n.

Πασίωνα Pasion, originally the slave of Archestratus (§ 48), and accountant to the bankingfirm of Archestratus and Antisthenes, was set free by his masters and succeeded them in their business (§§ 43—48). The Trapeziticus of Isocrates, which belongs to B.C. 394, while Pasion was probably still a μέτοικος, and not yet rewarded with the citizenship of Athens, purports to be a speech written in prosecution of Pasion for defrauding a subject of Satyrus, king of Bosporus. The father of Demosthenes had some money in Pasion's bank (Or. 27 § 11). Pasion, according to his son, Apollodorus, had conferred many benefits on the state, e.g. by presenting five triremes and a thousand shields (Or. 45 § 85), and his credit was good throughout all Greece (Or. 50 § 56). He died in B.C. 370 (Or. 46 § 13). Introd. pp. xix— xxi.

οὐκ εἰσαγώγιμος Or. 45 § 5 (of this very trial), παρεγράψατο τὴν δίκην ἣν ἔφευγε Φορμίων οὐκ εἰσαγώγιμον εἶναι. See ὑπόθεσις § 3, παραγράφεται, n.
