To prove the truth of these statements of mine, I will call before you as witness to these facts Theogenes himself, and will compel him to testify.

Call, please, Theogenes of Erchia.1Deposition

Theogenes of Erchia deposes that when he was king he married Phano, believing her to be the daughter of Stephanus, and that, when he found he had been deceived, he cast the woman away and ceased to live with her, and that he expelled Stephanus from his post of assessor, and no longer allowed him to serve in that capacity.”

1 Erchia, a deme of the tribe Aegeïs; but see note a on Dem. 59.72.
