ally drove him from the city, and set up the standard of revolt with the Ionians, in B. C. 499. Gorgus fled to the Persians; Onesilus became king of Salamis, and persuaded all the other cities in Cyprus, with the exception of Amathus, to renounce their allegiance to the Persians. Thereupon Onesilus laid siege to Amathus; and as Dareitis sent a large force to its relief under the command of Artybios, Onesilis begged aid of the Ioniams. They readily complied with his request; and in the following year, B.
