This article analyses the role of Solon’s laws in the discourse Against Timarchus with particular reference to the educational project that the speaker attrib- utes to this ancient legislator. After explaining the historical and juridical context of the trial (§ 1), firstly, I describe what laws the speaker calls into question (§2); then, I dis- cuss the issue of the reliability of the attribution of these laws to Solon (§ 3); finally, I present some considerations on Aeschines’ rhetorical strategy and I argue that not only his laws, but also his poems, his role as political speaker and the very character of Solon form an integral part of this strategy (§ 4).

Abstract

This article analyses the role of Solon’s laws in the discourse Against Timarchus with particular reference to the educational project that the speaker attrib- utes to this ancient legislator. After explaining the historical and juridical context of the trial (§ 1), firstly, I describe what laws the speaker calls into question (§2); then, I dis- cuss the issue of the reliability of the attribution of these laws to Solon (§ 3); finally, I present some considerations on Aeschines’ rhetorical strategy and I argue that not only his laws, but also his poems, his role as political speaker and the very character of Solon form an integral part of this strategy (§ 4).
