Abstract. The oratory has been brilliantly practiced by the ten elected Greeks, a number settled by the Alexandrian Canon. Oratory was actually practiced by means of the three manners, which became classical: judicial speech, especially practiced by Antiphon, Andicide, Lycias and Isaios; demonstrative speech, especially represented by Isocrates and his rhetoric school; deliberative speech practiced by Demosthenes, Eschine, Hiperides, Lycurgus and Deinarhos. Such thing has only been possible after Corax and Tissias settled in broad lines the judicial speech technique, and the first-generation sophists taught the Greeks how to argue. pp. 169178
