Aeschines (389 – 314 BC) was a Greek statesman.  He had a distinguished army career, and moved from the army into politics.  He is known for three important speeches: Against Timarchus (which ended its namesake’s political career), On the False Embassy, a response to an attack by Demosthenes, and Against Ctesiphon.  These three speeches were called by the ancients "the Three Graces."
