ἐν τῇ ἀντωμοσίᾳ ‘When Pancleon contended (in his affidavit on the occasion of the suit brought against him by Aristodicus here) that the Polemarch had no jurisdiction over him, it was proved by testimony that Pancleon was not a Plataean: and, though he indicted the witness for perjury [ἐπισκηψάμενος, sc. ψευδομαρτυριῶν], he failed to follow up the indictment, but allowed A. to obtain a verdict against him. And when his term of grace had expired, he paid the fine, on such conditions as he could obtain’ (from Aristodicus). — καθότι ἔπειθε: i.e. he obtained an abatement, or arranged to pay by instalments; cp. Thuc. I. 117, κατὰ χρόνους ταξάμενοι ἀποδοῦναι.
