V.I. ANTIPHON of Athens, born in 480 B.C., spent his prime in the great period of Athens but, disliking democracy was himself an ardent oligarch who with others set up a violent short-lived oligarchy in 411. The restored democracy executed him for treason. He had been a writer of speeches for other people involved in litigation. Of the fifteen surviving works three concern real murder-cases, the others being exercises in speech-craft consisting of three 'tetralogies' whereof each tetralogy comprises four skeleton speeches: accuser's; defendant's; accuser's reply; defendant's counter-reply. ANDOCIDES of Athens, born c440 B.C., disliked the extremes of both democracy and oligarchy. Involved in religious scandal in 415 B.C., he went into a money-making exile. After at least two efforts to return, he did so under the amnesty of 403. In 399 he was acquitted on a charge of profaning the 'Mysteries' and in 391-390 took part in an abortive peace embassy to Sparta. Extand speeches are: 'On his Return' (a plea on his second attempt); "On the Mysteries' (a self-defence); 'On the Peace with Sparta'. The speech 'Against Alcibiades' (the notorious politician) is suspect
Andocides by Andocides( Book )

10 editions published between 1575 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite his poor reputation as a rhetorician among critics both ancient and modern, the four speeches attributed in MSS to Andocides, the second of the canon of ten Attic orators, are important examples of forensic and deliberative oratory and political invective from the late fifth and early fourth centuries BC. They also provide vital evidence for the development of Attic prose in this period and for Athenian legal processes, and are major historical sources. This edition, with notes keyed to the translation, contains the first commentary in English on the whole corpus of Andocides' work, making it accessible to scholars and students with or without Greek
