On the Estate of Nicostratus
[hypothesis] Nicostratus having died in a foreign land, Hagnon and Hagnotheus, as being his first cousins （their father having been brother to Nicostratus's father）, contend for the succession to his estate against Chariades, who claims to be heir by bequest, that is to say, by will. Isaeus, the orator, being a kinsman of Hagnon and his brother, speaks as their advocate.1 The question at issue is one of fact.
