Demosthenes, On the Liberty of the Rhodians, section 26 (search)
I beg you, in Heaven's name, to consider this point: why is there no man in Byzantium to dissuade his country-men from seizing Chalcedon, which belongs to the King and was once held by you, while the Byzantines have no shadow of a claim to it? Or from taking Selymbria, once an ally of yours, and making it tributary to themselves, and including it in the territory of Byzantium, contrary to all oaths and agreements which guarantee the autonomy of those cities?
Demosthenes, Against Leptines, section 60 (search)
Thrasybulus made you masters of the Hellespont, so that you farmed out the toll of ten per cent,Levied by the Byzantines on the value of the cargo of every ship passing through the Bosporus. and thus being well furnished with money forced the Lacedaemonians to conclude a peace favorable to you?The Athenians gained Byzantium and Chalcedon in 390 B.C. It is strange to find the notorious peace of Antalcidas mentioned with approval. When subsequently they were banished, you, Athenians, passed what I think was a very proper decree in favor of men exiled through devotion to your interests, conferring on them the title of Friends of the StateA proxenus was a foreigner who, in his own state, looked after Athenian interests.
