Sic. 15. 13. its citadel; and, being anxious to become master of those places, he started with his army, and after two days' march got through the pass and pitched his camp on the bank of the river Ardaxanus, not far from the town.

He therefore gave up all hope of the latter, but did not entirely despair of taking the town.
