  Demades - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 318 (or earlier), having been detected in an intrigue with Perdiccas, Antipater's opponent, he was put to death by Antipater at Pella, when entrusted with another mission by the Athenians.
Demades was avaricious and unscrupulous; but he was a highly gifted and practised orator.
A fragment of a speech, bearing his name, in which he defends his conduct, is to be found in C Müller's Oratores Attici, ii.

 BMCR-L: BMCR 2002.09.22 Brun, L'orateur De/made: essai d'histoire et
Numerous supposed sayings of Demades, known from antiquity as Demadeia, are recorded: B. points out that they are generally preserved out of context and therefore difficult to evaluate and moreover that, although Demades had a reputation for wit, many of the anecdotes preserving Demadeia show Demades' wit being capped and outdone by someone else.
It is thus impossible to reconstruct in detail a coherent narrative of Demades' career, and it is dangerous to assume that, even if broadly consistent in his attitudes, he was not obliged as politicians commonly are to shift his ground according to circumstance.
Chapter IX on whether Demades was a demagogue first considers Demades' attitude to the theorikon in light of his saying that the theorika were the cement of democracy.

Of his want of courage and assurance to speak offhand, they make it also another argument, that when he was at a loss, and discomposed, Demades would often rise up on the sudden to support him, but he was never observed to do the same for Demades.
All, however, used to consider Demades, in the mere use of his natural gifts, an orator impossible to surpass, and that in what he spoke on the sudden, he excelled all the study and preparation of Demosthenes.
As for Demades, he did not long enjoy the new honors he now came in for, divine vengeance for the death of Demosthenes pursuing him into Macedonia, where he was justly put to death by those whom he had basely flattered.

The applicant, John (Ioannis) Demades, is a Cypriot national of Greek-Cypriot origin, born in 1929 and living in Nicosia.
Mr Demades stated that since 1974 he had been prevented by the Turkish armed forces from having access to, using and enjoying possession of his property or developing it.
Mr Demades was still the registered owner of the property at issue in his case and there was similarly no doubt that he could be regarded as a “victim”.

 Phocion the Good
Demades, one of the demagogues, publicly taunted Phocion, saying: "Let us simply adopt the whole Spartan constitution here in Athens." To this, Phocion replied: "You, with your perfume and your fancy clothes, are the perfect man to speak in favor of such a proposal."
Demades had the bad luck to arrive in Macedonia just at the time that Antipater, because of sickness, gave up his command to Cassander.
Cassander had found a letter written by Demades inviting Antigonus to come and take over Macedonia and Greece, which, wrote Demades, were hanging "by an old and rotten thread" -- an obvious reference to Antipater, Cassander's patron.

The orator Demades was trying to address his Athenian audience.
The audience asked, 'And what about the goddess Demeter?' 'As for Demeter,' Demades replied, 'she is angry at all of you for preferring Aesop's fables to politics!'
Demeter was a Greek agricultural goddess and was of special importance to the Athenians because of the cult of the Eleusinian Mysteries (see Fable 559).

 Phocion by Plutarch
And on his pressing him to permit his son Phocus to receive it, he replied, "If my son returns to a right mind, his patrimony is sufficient; if not, all supplies will be insufficient." But to Antipater he answered more sharply, who would have him engaged in something dishonourable.
Phocion might well think that poverty a virtue, in which, after having so often been general of the Athenians, and admitted to the friendship of potentates and princes, he had now grown old.
Demades, meantime, delighted in lavishing his wealth even in positive transgressions of the law.

 Plutarch: Life of Phocion (1) - translation
Phocion was an Athenian statesman and general, who was prominent from 348 B.C. onwards, until he was condemned to death in 318 B.C. Demades the orator, by studying in his whole administration to please the Macedonians and Antipater, had great authority in Athens.
When he found himself by that servile policy often obliged to propose laws and make speeches injurious to the dignity and virtue of his country, he used to say, " He was excusable, because he came to the helm when the commonwealth was no more than a wreck."
Demades was the very man who wrecked his country.
