1 Andocides was a poor historian （cf. Peace with Sp., Introd.）. Here he confuses the battle of Pallene （Hdt. 1.62）, by which Peisistratus regained his tyranny for the third time （c. 546）, and the battle of Sigeum which resulted in the final expulsion of his son Hippias, the last of the dynasty （510）. Leogoras and Charias were not as prominent on this occasion as Andocides would have the jury believe. The fall of Hippias was mainly due to the energy of the Alcmaeonidae and the substantial help provided by Sparta.
