[17] And mark how far more impious this man has shown himself than Diagoras the Melian1; for he was impious in speech regarding the sacred things and celebrations of a foreign place, whereas Andocides was impious in act regarding the sanctities of his own city.

1 Called the “Godless”; cf. Aristoph. Birds 1073; Dio. Sic. 8.6.
