I am sure you have all heard the story of their treatment of Callias, son of Hipponicus, who negotiated the celebrated peace470 B.C., after the battle of Eurymedon. under which the King of Persia was not to approach within a day's ride of the coast, nor sail with a ship of war between the Chelidonian islands and the Blue Rocks. At the inquiry into his conduct they came near to putting him to death, and mulcted him in fifty talents, because he was said to have taken bribes on embassy.
