You would know them
at once, should you see them. When this man Zenothemis was scheming to prevent
the vessel from completing her voyage to Athens
we chose one of these men after consulting with one
as our representative.
He was known to us after a fashion, but we had no idea of his real character.
This was in fact a piece of misfortune for us as great, if so much may be said,
as our having to deal with rascals at the start. This man who was sent out by
us—his name was Aristophon, and he is the same one, as we now hear,
who managed the business of Miccalion—has entered into an agreement
with the plaintiff, and has sold him his services. In a word he is the one who
is managing the whole affair, and Zenothemis has been glad to accept this help.
