The case of the crown

The case of the crown

(p.382) 14 The case of the crown
Demosthenes the Orator

Douglas M. MacDowell

Oxford University Press

Ktesiphon proposed the award of a gold crown to Demosthenes for his services to Athens, but Aiskhines prosecuted Ktesiphon by a graphe paranomon. Aiskhines in Against Ktesiphon declares that the proposal is contrary to law on three grounds: Demosthenes was subject to euthynai, a crown should not be awarded in the theatre, and the praise of Demosthenes is false. Demosthenes in his speech On the Crown replies to all these points, but devotes most time to a defence of his political record and to criticism of Aiskhines.

Keywords:   Ktesiphon, crown, Aiskhines, graphe paranomon, euthynai
