It would be a long story to tell you how this man was
repeatedly outraged and insulted by the people; but a year before the capture of
Eretria, detecting the
machinations of Philistides and his party, he denounced him as a traitor. Then a
number of fellows banded together, with Philip for their paymaster and managing
director, and dragged Euphraeus off to prison for setting the city in an uproar.
