Demosthenes, Against Aristocrates, 64


nanYes, but, — someone will say, — those tribunals are worthless and unfairly constituted, whereas the proposals of the defendant are righteous and admirable. — I deny it. I say that of all the proposals ever laid before you I know of none more outrageous than this decree, and that of all the tribunals to be found in the whole world there are none that can be shown to be more venerable or more righteous than ours. I desire to speak briefly of certain truths, the relation of which reflects credit and honor upon the city, and which you will be gratified to hear. I will begin with a statement which you will find especially instructive, first referring to the free gift which has already been conferred upon Charidemus.
