Now first of all, gentlemen, call to mind what I originally said that I was setting out to show. It was, was it not, that peace has never yet caused the fall of the Athenian democracy. That has now been proved against all possible arguments to the contrary. However, I have heard some people saying before now that the result of our last peace with Sparta1 was the installment of the Thirty, the death of many citizens by the hemlock-cup, and the exile of others.

1 In 404, after Aegospotami.
