Summary/Abstract: In this study, I am arguing that the words ἱερόσυλος (temple-robber) and κατάρατος (accursed) are key elements in Demosthenes' speech Against Timocrates. In both cases, I argue that in this speech, elements of religious vocabulary are clearly used, Demosthenes legitimately and convincingly uses such strong expressions against his opponents. As these words rarely occur in classical period texts, I am going to examine in parallel the fifth to third centuries BC prosaic texts, furthermore the epigraphical sources and the dramas, which are the primary conditions for understanding the role of these words in argumentation.
