Page 294 - Witnesses of such a character as not to deserve credit in the most trifling cause, upon the most immaterial facts, gave evidence so incredible, or, to speak more properly, so impossible to be true, that it ought not to have been believed if it had come from the mouth of Cato ; and upon such evidence, from such witnesses, were innocent men condemned to death and executed.
Page 479 - Demosthenes, amisso exercitu , a captivitate gladio et voluntaria morte se vindicat : Nicias autem, ne Demosthenis quidem exemplo , ut sibi consuleret , admonitus , cladem suorum auxit dedecore captivitatis.
