ἠλλαντοπώλουν καί τι καὶ βινεσκόμην.SAUSAGE-SELLER: I sold sausages and did a bit of fornication. CLEON: Oh! my god! I am a lost man! Ah! still one slender hope remains. Tell me, was it on the Agora or near the gates that you sold your sausages? SAUSAGE-SELLER: Near the gates, in the market for salted goods. CLEON Alas! I see the prophecy of the god is verily come true. Alas! roll me home. I am a miserable, ruined man. Farewell, my chaplet! 'Tis death to me to part with you. So you are to belong to another; 'tis certain he cannot be a greater thief, but perhaps he may be a luckier one. SAUSAGE-SELLER: Oh! Zeus, the protector of Greece! 'tis to you I owe this victory! DEMOSTHENES: Hail! illustrious conqueror, but forget not, that if you have become a great man, 'tis thanks to me; I ask but a little thing; appoint me secretary of the law-court in the room of Phanus. DEMOS (to the Sausage-seller). But what is your name then? Tell me. SAUSAGE-SELLER: My name is Agoracritus, because I have always lived on the Agora in the midst of lawsuits. DEMOS: Well then, Agoracritus, I stand by you; as for the Paphlagonian, I hand him over to your mercy. AGORACRITUS: Demos, I will care for you to the best of my power, and all shall admit that no citizen is more devoted than I to this city of simpletons.

33.2. At this time, In the early summer of 408 B.C. therefore, the people had only to meet in assembly, and Alcibiades addressed them. He lamented and bewailed his own lot, but had only little and moderate blame to lay upon the people. The entire mischief he ascribed to a certain evil fortune and envious genius of his own. Then he descanted at great length upon the vain hopes which their enemies were cherishing, and wrought his hearers up to courage. At last they crowned him with crowns of gold, and elected him general with sole powers by land and sea.
17. Plutarch, Pericles, 32.2 (1st cent. CE - 2nd cent. CE)

The people accepted with delight these slanders, and so, while they were in this mood, a bill was passed, on motion of Dracontides, that Pericles should deposit his accounts of public moneys with the prytanes, and that the jurors should decide upon his case with ballots which had lain upon the altar of the goddess on the acropolis. But Hagnon amended this clause of the bill with the motion that the case be tried before fifteen hundred jurors in the ordinary way, whether one wanted to call it a prosecution for embezzlement and bribery, or malversation.
