Andocides argues that under the new regime he cannot be punished for violating a restriction imposed in 415, and he cites a list of laws, past and current, to prove that old liabilities are cancelled.
Andocides' report of a general "scrutiny" suggests that many potentially divisive measures were somehow reauthorized, statute by statute, in such a way as to bar public suits for certain offenses before 403.
Andocides tells us that it cannot be invoked against those who collaborated with the Thirty, for "one must apply the laws from Euclides." But Demosthenes and Lycurgus refer to Demophantus' decree as valid in the fourth century&emdash;indeed, Lycurgus regarded it as a law enacted after the fall of the Thirty.

 Andocides: Definition and Links by Encyclopedian.com - All about Andocides
Andocides, (440 - 390 BC) one of the "ten" Attic orators.
He was implicated during the Peloponnesian War in the mutilation of the Herms[?] on the eve of the departure of the Athenian expedition against Sicily in 415 BC.
Speeches extant--De Reditu, his plea for his return and removal of civil disabilities; De Mysteriis, his defence against the charge of impiety in attending the Eleusinian mysteries; De Pace, advocating peace with Sparta; Contra Alcibiadem, generally considered spurious.

 Andocides, from Lives of the Ten Orators, at Peitho's Web
ANDOCIDES, the son of Leogoras, [and grandson of that Andocides] who once made a peace between the Athenians and the Lacedaemonians, by descent a Cydathenian or Thorian, of a noble family, and, as Hellanicus tells us, the offspring of Mercury himself, for the race of Heralds belongs to him.
Now, though Andocides was very much esteemed of for his skill in the management of the affairs of the commonwealth, yet his inclinations led him rather to traffic by sea; and by this means he contracted friendship with the kings of Cyprus and other great princes.
This Andocides himself was at the charge of a cyclic chorus for the tribe Aegeis, at the performance of a dithyrambus.

But the whole question of the guilt or innocence of Andocides in the religious scandals is too complex to be considered fully here; for detailed discussion readers should turn to the two editions of his speeches mentioned at the end of this Introduction.
The upshot in 415 was that Andocides was not condemned either for profanation of the Mysteries or for mutilation of the Herms, although he was widely suspected of being guilty of both.
So Andocides returned to live in Athens, assuming that he would not now be penalized for his actions in 415.

Thus Andocides and his relatives were spared, but a number of his friends were executed.
Andocides’ subsequent unpopularity led to the passage of the “Isotimides decree,” which barred anyone who had confessed to an act of impiety from entering the temples and agora of Athens.
Andocides went to Sparta as a member of an Athenian embassy to discuss peace.

 Gagarin and MacDowell, Antiphon and Andocides, University of Texas Press
Both translators show steady hands, accurately conveying the substance (and nuances) of the speeches in a clear, modern idiom...The book also succeeds in its aim of making the orators intelligible to novices; the introductions and notes provide a brief survey of some of the historical and legal complexities of Attic oratory.
The speeches offer evidence on Greek moral views, social and economic conditions, political and social ideology, and other aspects of Athenian culture that have been largely ignored: women and family life, slavery, and religion, to name just a few.
Andocides' speeches are introduced and translated by Douglas MacDowell, Professor of Greek at the University of Glasgow.

argues first that the best sources, Thucydides and Andocides, keep them apart and that the later blurring came from the deliberate efforts of certain politicians, the conceptual similarity of the two acts, the meshing of legal procedure in both sets of cases, and the notoriety of Alcibiades.
The final chapter, "Religious arguments at Andokides' trial", summarizes in detail the Lysianic "Against Andocides" whose argument about divine intervention in human life is found also in Antiphon's "On the Murder of Herodes" and probably in the speeches of Socrates' accusers.
Andocides' response to each point is considered and then his attack on Kallias, whose cynical and illegal actions recall other politically motivated impiety trials such as Diopeithes against Anaxagoras and Meletus against Socrates.

He provides a general introduction providing details regarding the life and career of Andocides and his family background, and offering discussion of the orator's work and of classical Greek rhetoric with attention to received scholarly views (ancient and modern) about the author.
It is thus that an orator produces arguments based on probability (to eikos) and common opinion (doxa) and constructs images and depictions of events, of himself and of others which are to all intents and purposes lies which resemble the truth.
He cites only to reject the ancient views that Andocides was not a good orator, and he accepts the biographical details that he was not a logographer and did not speak frequently to his credit in light of his inclusion in the canon (p.

It happened that Andocides, amongst the rest who were prisoners upon the same account, contracted particular acquaintance and intimacy with one Timaeus, a person inferior to him in repute, but of remarkable dexterity and boldness.
(3) He persuaded Andocides to accuse him and some few others of this crime, urging to him that, upon his confession, he would be, by the decree of the people, secure of his pardon, whereas the event of judgment is uncertain to all men, but to great persons, such as he was, most formidable.
(4) Andocides was prevailed upon, and accused himself and some others, and, by the terms of the decree, obtained his pardon, while all the persons named by him, except some few who had saved themselves by flight, suffered death.

Gagarin is responsible for the Series Introduction and the material on Antiphon, MacDowell for Andocides.
Gagarin's Antiphon is particularly indebted to his recent Antiphon: The Speeches (Cambridge 1997), while MacDowell's Andocides draws heavily on his Andocides: On the Mysteries (Oxford, 1962).
The volume's main limitation is predictable, given its compact nature: the breadth of its coverage entails a certain sacrifice of depth.

By a curious irony in his desire to make Andocides known and interesting to the classical student, Edwards may inadvertently impair his project.
Edwards creates the impression that the appeal to techne will support and justify the view that the orator is a worthwhile specimen of classical rhetoric.[[4]] Yet in citing Aristotle as a 'witness' to Andocides' value, Edwards misses the point that in rhetoric witnesses don't necessarily tell the truth but are always partisan supporters (cf.

Too refers to Andocides' use of aporrheta at 2.3 and goes on to connect this with an attempt to repudiate the view that Andocides is a parricide in 2.7.
Too seems to take 2.3 as hinting at Andocides' confession during the investigation into the mutilation of the Hermae in 415 BC, but he is in fact alluding rather mysteriously to a secret service he has performed whose details are only known by the 500 members of the council (cf.
This may be right, but I would point out that one of the indicators used by Too, "his archaic style", is problematic.
