one can foresee, from calculation and on principle, but only a fixed disposition of Courage will enable one to face sudden peril. (5) Those who face danger in ignorance also appear courageous; and they come very near to those whose bravery rests on a sanguine temperament, though inferior to them inasmuch as they lack self-confidence, which the sanguine possess. Hence the sanguine stand firm for a time; whereas those who have been deceived as to the danger, if they learn or suspect the true state of affairs, take to flight, as the Argives did when they encountered the Lacedaemonians and thought they were Sicyonians.This occurred in the battle at the Long Walls of Corinth, 392 B.C. Lacedaemonian cavalry had dismounted and armed themselves with the shields of the routed Sicyonians, marked *s (Xen. Hell. 4.4.10). We have now described the characteristics both of the courageous and of those who are thought to be cou

392 B.C.When the year had ended, in Athens Philocles became archon, and in Rome the consular magistracy was assumed by six military tribunes, Publius and Cornelius, Caeso Fabius, Lucius Furius, Quintus Servilius, and Marcus ValeriusThis list is hopelessly defective. Livy 5.24.1 gives the names as Publius Cornelius Cossus, Publius Cornelius Scipio, Marcus Valerius Maximus, Caeso Fabius Ambustus, Lucius Furius Medullinus, and Quintus Servilius.; and this year the Ninety-seventh Olympiad was celebrated, that in which Terires was victor.In the "stadion." In this year the Athenians chose Thrasybulus general and sent him to sea with forty triremes. He sailed to Ionia, collected funds from the allies, and proceeded on his way; and while tarrying at the Chersonesus he made allies of Medocus and Seuthes, the kings of the Thracians. After some time he sailed from the Hellespont to Lesbos and anchored off the coast at Eresus. But strong winds a

Yet, gentlemen, his large fortune was not bequeathed to him by his father but given to him by your verdict; so that, even if he were not an Athenian citizen, he was in duty bound for this reason alone to do the city good service. Though so many extraordinary contributions for the cost of the war and the safety of the city have been made by all the citizens, Dicaeogenes (III.) has never contributed anything, except that after the capture of Lechaeum,One of the harbors of Corinth which was captured by the Spartans in 392 B.C. at the request of another citizen, he promised in the public assembly a subscription of 300 drachmas, a smaller sum than Cleonymus the Cretan.i.e., one who was not even an Athenian citiz

having ceased sacrificing victims at the altars they slaughter one anotherPossibly Isocrates may have in mind the massacre at Corinth in 392 B.C. (Xen. Hell. 4.4.3), the murder of certain Achaean suppliants, who took refuge in the temple of Heliconian Poseidon (Pausanias vii. 25), or the slaughter of 1200 prominent citizens in Argos in 371 B.C. (Diodorus xv. 58). Cf. Isoc. 5.52. there instead; and more people are in exile now from a single city than before from the whole of the Peloponnesus.

thinking that we would refuse and thus furnish him with a pretext for his desertion. Now in the case of the rest of his allies he was mistaken; for they all— including the Corinthians, Argives, Boeotians, and the rest—consented to hand them over to him, making a sworn agreement that if he would supply them with money they would hand over the Greeks in the Continenti.e. the Ionian Greeks, whom the Spartans offered to hand over to the Persians in 392 B.C.; but we, and we alone, could not bring ourselves either to hand them over or to join in the agreement.

urged this course upon one another. But the Argives, Athenians, Boeotians, and392 B.C. those among the Corinthians who had received a share of the money from the Kinn again, when the signal was given to those who had been told whom they were to392 B.C. kill, they drew their swords and struck men down,—one while standing in a socis and mothers and sisters kept coming to them and trying to dissuade them, and,392 B.C. further, some of the very men who were in power promised under oath that they hould also remain, made plans for his entrance. And when the two men, partly by392 B.C. accident and partly by contrivance, had been made sentinels at the very gate whem to the sea and there killed many of them. But Pasimachus, the Lacedaemonian392 B.C. commander of horse, at the head of a few horsemen, when he saw the Sicyonians rished around the steps, being shoved and struck by the enemy, and still others392 B.C. were trodden under foot by one another and suffocated.

r. After this Teleutias came to assume charge of the ships of Herippidas, and he in his turn was now master of the gulf. Now the Lacedaemonians, upon hearing that392 B.C. Conon was not only rebuilding their wall for the Athenians out of the King's money, but was also, while maintaining his fleet from the latter's funds,392 B.C. en392 B.C. engaged in winning over the islands and the coast cities on the mainland to the Athenians, conceived the idea that if they informed Tiribazus, who was the King's general, of these things, they could either bring Tiribazus over entirely to their side or at least put an end to his maintaining Conon's fleet. Having come to this conclussals went no further than words.Literally, “were words only”; i.e. were not treated as a reasonable basis for a peace. For the Athenians were afraid to agree that392 B.C. the cities and the islands should be independent lest they should be deprived of Lemnos, Imbros, and ScyrosThese islands were among the earliest possessions of A

IUNO REGINA, TEMPLUM (aedes, Liv. bis; new/s, Dionys.; I(eron, Mon. Anc., Plut.): a temple on the Aventine vowed by Camillus just before the taking of Veii in 396 B.C. to the Iuno Regina of Veii (quae nunc Veios colis), and dedicated by him in 392 (Liv. v. 21. 3, 22. 6-7, 23. 7, 31. 3, 52. 10). In this temple was the wooden statue of the goddess brought by Camillus from Veii (Dionys. xiii. 3; Plut. Cam. 6; Val. Max. i. 8. 3; Rosch. ii. 609-610), and it is mentioned several times in connection with gifts and sacrifices offered in atonement for prodigia (Liv. xxi. 62. 8; xxii. I. 17; xxxi. 12. 9; cf. xxvii. 37. 7). It was restored by Augustus (Mon. Anc. iv. 6), but is not mentioned afterwards. Two dedicatory inscriptions (CIL vi. 364-365) found near the church of S. Sabina indicate the approximate site of the temple, which corresponds (not with the church itself, which stands on the site of a private house, as recent discoveries have shown; see SR ii. 329-342; DAP 2. xiii. 119-126;
