Call, please, Aristomachus, son of Critodemus, of Alopecê,1 for it is he who paid—or rather in whose house were paid—the mina and a half to this man who cannot be bribed, in the matter of the decree which Antimedon proposed on behalf of the people of Tenedos.2Deposition

Read also in sequence the other depositions of the same sort, and that of Hypereides3 and Demosthenes. For this goes beyond all else—that the fellow should be most glad, by selling indictments to get money from men, from whom no one else would think of demanding it.4Depositions

1 Alopecê, a deme of the tribe Antiochis.

2 Tenedos, an island in the Aegean, off the west coast of Phrygia.

3 A prominent Athenian orator and statesman.

4 That is, these men were too influential to fear blackmail from a man like Theocrines.
