The king was deeply affected with so many suspicions, and had the
maid-servants and some of the free women also tortured; one of which cried
out in her agonies, "May that God that governs the earth and the heaven
punish this author of all these our miseries, Antipater's mother!"
The king took a handle from this confession, and proceeded to inquire further
into the truth of the matter. So this woman discovered the friendship of
Antipater's mother to Pheroras, and Antipater's women, as also their secret
meetings, and that Pheroras and Antipater had drunk with them for a whole
night together as they returned from the king, and would not suffer any
body, either man-servant or maidservant, to be there; while one of the
free women discovered the matter.
