If they would obey him, B.C. 148 he said, he would show them a safe retreat from this place. Excited by the new hopes with which he inspired them, they chose him as their leader.

Learning that he Y.R. 606 was much esteemed there also, Prusias directed him to B.C. 148 petition the Senate to release him from the payment of the money still due to Attalus. He sent Menas as his fellow-ambassador, and told him if he should secure a remission of the payments to spare Nicomedes, but if not, to kill him at Rome.
