While these things were going on, Rheomithres,1 who had been sent by the insurgents to King Tachos in Egypt, received from him five hundred talents of silver and fifty warships, and sailed to Asia to the city named Leucae.2 To this city he summoned many leaders of the insurgents. These he arrested and sent in irons to Artaxerxes, and, though he himself had been an insurgent, by the favours that he conferred through his betrayal, he made his peace with the King.

1 Mentioned in Xen. Cyrop. 8.8.4 as leaving his wife and children and the children of his friends as hostage in the power of Tachos. Fought at Granicus and Issus (see Book 17.19.4 and 34.5).

2 On a promontory at the mouth of the Hermus River (see chap. 18.2 and 4).
