The sychophant characteristically acts after the event and rakes up old charges It seems that Dionysius was a council member and a woman named Damaris was also in attendance.

The social disparity between the average juror and elite litigants may have played a role: since most jurors probably did not have the resources -- legal, financial, or personal -- to transform their private fistfights into legal fisticuffs, they might well look askance at a rich man's aggressive pursuit of a personal feud before a public court.
