To prove that these statements of mine are true, I will bring before you as witnesses those who were present and saw for themselves.

Please call Chionides of Xypetê1 and Euthetion of Cydathenaeum.2Depositions

Chionides of Xypetê and Euthetion of Cydathenaeum depose that they were invited to dinner by Chabrias, when he celebrated with a banquet his victory in the chariot race, and that the banquet was held at Colias; and that they know that Phrynion was present at the banquet, having with him Neaera, the present defendant; that they themselves lay down to sleep, as did Phrynion and Neaera, and that they observed that men got up in the night to go in to Neaera, among them some of the serving-men who were household slaves of Chabrias.”

1 Xypetê, a deme of the tribe Cecropis.

2 Cydathenaeum, a deme of the tribe Pandionis.
