Abstract

Footnotes 1 This is part of a paper read to the London Classical Society and I thank members for suggestions and encouragement. I am happy to have benefited again from discussion with my friend Dr. E. Badian. ‐ The paper belongs to a series of studies of Athenian society, so I permit myself to refer the patient reader to Proc. Afr. Class. Assn. I (1958), 61‐82a and to Historia IX (1960), 155‐80 2 Thalheim, R.E. II, 931; G. Mathieu, Démostène, Plaidoyers politiques III (Budé, 1945), 129. 3 This was A. Schaefer's view. I hope to defend it elsewhere. 4 10, 2. The story is that Aristogeiton spoke for war in the assembly, but when an army was to be raised, he appeared with his legs in bandages and hobbled about on a stick. So Phocion said . If the remark is authentic, it could be used against the thesis that Aristogeiton was an ally of Phocion. Yet one may wonder whether a political patron is bound to connive at the malingering of his friends; and doubt becomes acute when the patron is as ostentatiously virtuous as Phocion appears in the tradition. 5 Dein. II, 8; 11; 18. 6
