The army of Xerxes, burning down certain of these, made them better known in Greece
, namely Erochus, Charadra
, Amphicleia, Neon, Tithronium and Drymaea. The rest of the Phocian cities, except Elateia
, were not famous in former times, I mean Phocian Trachis, Phocian Medeon, Echedameia, Ambrossus, Ledon, Phlygonium and Stiris. On the occasion to which I have referred all the cities enumerated were razed to the ground and their people scattered in villages. The one exception to this treatment was Abae, whose citizens were free from impiety, and had had no share in the seizure of the sanctuary or in the war.
