This man suspended the jurycourts and rhetorical contests.[3] He died under [the regime of] Antipater.[4]

C4 BC. See generally RE Demades; NP Demades; OCD4 Demades; FGrH 227. Identical with [delta 415] Demades.
[1] See again delta 415; this is a distorted way of describing him (and his family) as deriving wealth from shipping.
[2] That is, his influence on Athenian policy-making between c.338 and c.326 BC. (Modern scholars dispute the authenticity of the speech which has been transmitted under this title.)
[3] (Lawsuits, in plain terms.) This sentence should refer to Antipater (next note), and Kiesseling's textual way of achieving it was to change ou(=tos to o(/s and insert the material after *)antipa/trou.
[4] For the Macedonian viceroy Antipater/Antipatros see alpha 2703, alpha 2704. Demades was actually killed (in 319) by his son Cassander/Kassandros.
