ASSAULT AND WOUNDING

All my efforts to achieve this have been blocked by this man Simon, as

I shall prove to you.

[5] We both fell in love with Theodotos, a Plataian youth, Council. And I

tried to win his affection by treating him well, while Simon thought that with

violent and lawless behaviour he would force the boy to do whatever he

wanted. It would take too long to tell all the mistreatment Theodotos has

received from him. But what I think you should hear is his offences against

me personally.
