The Peace of Philokrates

The Peace of Philokrates

(p.314) 12 The Peace of Philokrates
Demosthenes the Orator

Douglas M. MacDowell

Oxford University Press

This chapter recounts the events leading up to the Peace of Philokrates and the embassies to Philip in which Demosthenes and Aiskhines participated. The treaty turned out to be unsatisfactory to the Athenians, but in On the Peace Demosthenes advises them to acquiesce in it. The Second Philippic urges them to distrust Philip. Then Demosthenes accused Aiskhines of misconduct in On the False Embassy, the surviving text of which is probably the draft prepared before the trial. Examples are given of its variety and liveliness.

Keywords:   Philokrates, embassies, Philip, Aiskhines, Philippic
