Translation:
Of Athens; son of the elementary teacher Atrometus and Leucothea[1] the priestess. He himself was an actor, then a secretary, then an orator; he was a traitor, who betrayed Cersobleptes[2] and the Phocians. He indicted Ctesiphon for violating the constitution when he proposed that Demosthenes be crowned;[3] he lost the case, and went into exile in Rhodes, where he became a teacher.
