About this Item

Ma Hera! As if Athens did not have enough problems in the late 4th century B.C. So here's the context: In spite of some of Demosthenes?s finest speeches, all Greece has been overcome by Macedon under Philip II. Aeschines, the Athenian rhetor, has led a diplomatic expedition to Philip?s court where he concluded a treaty with the victorious king. In 344, Demosthenes attempts, unsuccessfully, to impeach Aeschines, claiming that the treaty is "dishonorable." Aeschines is now angry. This anger is exacerbated by a declaration of Ctesiphon, who claims that Demosthenes, as a benefactor of the Athenian people, should receive a gold crown at the Great Dionysia festival. Aeschines counters, claiming that Ctesiphon?s request goes contrary to Athenian law, and so attempts to bring a lawsuit against Ctesiphon. Enter Demosthenes to the defense of Ctesiphon. He presents this speech, "On the Crown," to the Athenian public. They vote in his favor! Demosthenes is honored! Ctesiphon is free! Aeschines is still angry! And Athens is still under Macedonian control . . . . Translated by Friedrich Jacobs (1764?1847), this 1833 German edition is uncommon: Two copies were traced via OCLC and RLIN (at the Universities of Chicago and Michigan). 8vo. 207, [1] pp. Removed from a nonce volume. Uncut copy. Traces of soiling and staining on title- and last page. Light foxing throughout. Bookseller Inventory # 11681
