Demosthenes, Orations, 24.131

People convicted under the alien acts do not think themselves aggrieved when they are kept in yonder building οἴκημα is a common euphemism for δεσμωτήριον . There seems to have been only one prison at Athens, and this passage suggests that it was in view of the Agora; but τούτῳ is not necessarily deictic. until the trial for false evidence is over; they simply stay there without expecting to get the freedom of the streets by putting in bail.
