63. [p. 196] Δημοσθένη δὲ τὸν ῥήτορα καὶ τεκνοποιήσασθαι ἐξ ἑταίρας ἔχει λόγος, αὐτὸς γοῦν ἐν τῷ περὶ Χρυσίου λόγῳ προαγήοχε τὰ τέκνα ἐπὶ τὸ δικαστήριον ὡς δι᾽ ἐκείνων, ἔλεον ἕξων χωρὶς τῆς μητρός, καίτοι ἔθος ἐχόντων τῶν κρινομένων τὰς γυναῖκας ἐπάγεσθαι: ἀλλ᾽ αἰδοῖ τοῦτ᾽ ἐποίησεν, φεύγων τὴν διαβολήν. ἀκόλαστος δ᾽ ἦν ῥήτωρ περὶ τὰ ἀφροδίσια, ὥς φησιν Ἰδομενεύς. Ἀριστάρχου γοῦν τινος ἐρασθεὶς μειρακίου καὶ δι᾽ αὐτὸν παροινήσας εἰς Νικόδημον ἐξέκοψεν αὐτοῦ τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς, παραδέδοται δὲ καὶ περὶ ὄψα καὶ περὶ νέους καὶ περὶ γυναῖκας πολυτελής. τοιγαροῦν καὶ γραμματεὺς ποτ᾽ αὐτοῦ εἶπετί δ᾽ ἄν τις περὶ Δημοσθένους λέγειν δύναιτο; τὰ γὰρ ἐνιαυτῷ μελετηθέντα ἐκείνῳ μία γυνὴ μιᾷ νυκτὶ συνέχεεν.’ ἀναλαβεῖν γοῦν καὶ εἰς τὴν οἰκίαν λέγεταί τινα Κνωσίωνα μειρακίσκον, καίτοι γυναῖκα ἔχων ὡς καὶ αὐτὴν ἀγανακτήσασαν συγκοιμᾶσθαι τῷ Κνωσίωνι. ”
