Four speeches are primary illustrations of an oratorical tradition that manipulated facts and distorted truths for the Athenian masses. They have also been chosen for their value as documents reflecting Athenian law, commerce and private life. An English introduction provides a survey of the Athenian legal system and the speechwriter's trade.
