Demosthenes in the [speech] Against Onetor [writes]: "is this not acknowledged protection",[1] meaning help, for a criminal from some protector and ally. Aeschines in the [speech] On the Mismanaged Embassy [writes]: "that they must transfer the Propylaia of the Athenian acropolis into the protection of the Kadmeia".[2] Didymus maintains that prostasia stands in place of prostasis, that is, what some call vestibule.[3]
