8.68.1. The man who moved this resolution was Pisander, who was throughout the chief ostensible agent in putting down the democracy. But he who concerted the whole affair, and prepared the way for the catastrophe, and who had given the greatest thought to the matter, was Antiphon, one of the best men of his day in Athens ; who, with a head to contrive measures and a tongue to recommend them, did not willingly come forward in the assembly or upon any public scene, being ill-looked upon by the multitude owing to his reputation for talent; and who yet was the one man best able to aid in the courts, or before the assembly, the suitors who required his opinion. 8.68.2. Indeed, when he was afterwards himself tried for his life on the charge of having been concerned in setting up this very government, when the Four Hundred were overthrown and hardly dealt with by the commons, he made what would seem to be the best defence of any known up to my time.

1.109. nonus, per quem oratio ad mutas et expertes animi res referetur, ut si ad equum, domum, vestem sermonem alicuius accommodes, quibus animus eorum, qui audiunt et aliquem dilexerunt, vehementer com- movetur. decimus, per quem inopia, infirmitas, soli- tudo demonstratur. undecimus, per quem liberorum aut parentum aut sui corporis sepeliundi aut alicuius eiusmodi rei commendatio fit. duodecimus, per quem disiunctio deploratur ab aliquo, cum diducaris ab eo, quicum libentissime vixeris, ut a parente filio, a fratre familiari. tertius decimus, per quem cum indignatione conquerimur, quod ab iis, a quibus minime conveniat, male tractemur, propinquis, amicis, quibus benigne fecerimus, quos adiutores fore putarimus, aut a qui- bis indignum est, ut servis, libertis, clientibus, sup- plicibus. quartus decimus, qui per obsecrationem sumitur; in quo orantur modo illi, qui audiunt, hu- mili et supplici oratione, ut misereantur. quintus de- cimus, per quem non nostras, sed eorum, qui cari nobis debent esse, fortunas conqueri nos demonstra- mus. sextus decimus, per quem animum nostrum in alios misericordem esse ostendimus et tamen amplum et excelsum et patientem incommodorum esse et fu- turum esse, si quid acciderit, demonstramus. nam saepe virtus et magnificentia, in quo gravitas et auctoritas est, plus proficit ad misericordiam commo- vendam quam humilitas et obsecratio. commotis au- tem animis diutius in conquestione morari non opor- tebit. quemadmodum enim dixit rhetor Apollonius, lacrima nihil citius arescit. Sed quoniam satis, ut videmur, de omnibus orationis partibus diximus et huius voluminis magnitudo lon- gius processit, quae sequuntur deinceps, in secundo libro dicemus.
9. Quintilian, Institutes of Oratory, 6.1.42 (1st cent. CE - 1st cent. CE)

6.1.42.  But all these perils may be boldly faced by those who have no difficulty in changing their line of pleading. Those however who cannot get away from what they have written, are reduced to silence by such emergencies or else led into making false statements, as for instance if an advocate should say, "He stretches out suppliant hands to embrace your knees," or "The unhappy man is locked in the embrace of his children," or "See he recalls me to the point," although the person in question is doing none of these things.
