and for this reason the name of the island is Helene. Salamis
lies over against Eleusis
, and stretches as far as the territory of Megara
. It is said that the first to give this name to the island was Cychreus, who called it after his mother Salamis
, the daughter of Asopus, and afterwards it was colonized by the Aeginetans with Telamon. Philaeus, the son of Eurysaces, the son of Ajax, is said to have handed the island over to the Athenians, having been made an Athenian by them. Many years afterwards the Athenians drove out all the Salaminians, having discovered that they had been guilty of treachery in the war with Cassander1
, and mainly of set purpose had surrendered to the Macedonians. They sentenced to death Aeschetades, who on this occasion had been elected general for Salamis
, and they swore never to forget the treachery of the Salaminians.
