Aeschines [in the speech] Against Ktesiphon [writes]:[1] "another private individual who had sailed into Rhodes, because he was too cowardly to tolerate his fear, was recently impeached, and the votes in the case were equal. If a single [extra] vote had gone against him, he would have been cast over the borders and died".[2]

Ἴσαι ψῆφοι: Αἰσχίνης κατὰ Κτησιφῶντος: ἕτερος δὲ πλεύσας ἰδιώτης εἰς Ῥόδον, ὅτι τὸν φόβον ἀνάνδρως ἤνεγκε, πρῴην μέν ποτε εἰσηγγέλθη, καὶ ἶσαι αἱ ψῆφοι αὐτῷ ἐγένοντο. εἰ δὲ μία ψῆφος ὑπερέπεσεν, ὑπερώριστο ἂν καὶ ἀπέθανεν.
