This volume presents a newly edited Greek text of one of the masterpieces of ancient Greek prose, a speech delivered by the orator Demosthenes before a court in Athens in 330 BCE. The book contains an introductory essay outlining the historical situation that gave rise to the speech, the nature of Demosthenes' rhetorical art, and the history of the text. The greater part of the book consists of a commentary that elucidates the text and makes clear how Demosthenes achieved his objectives.
