This chapter lists the assets left by Demosthenes senior at his death. They included a house, slaves (knife-makers and bed-makers), and money out on loan. Aphobos, Demophon, and Therippides were appointed as guardians of his two children. When Demosthenes came of age, he did not receive as much from his guardians as he expected, and so he prosecuted them. The speeches Against Aphobos (Orations 27 and 28), Against Aphobos for Phanos (Oration 29), and Against Onetor (Orations 30 and 31 ) are analysed.
