Again, it cannot possibly be alleged that it was natural that
you should be hoodwinked and misled. For even though you had no other basis of
calculation, even though you were unable of yourselves to grasp the state of
affairs, you had before your eyes the example of those people at Olynthus
. What has Philip done for them?
And how are they treating him? He restored Potidaea
to them, not at a time when he was no longer able to
keep them out, as Cersobleptes restored the Chersonesus
to you; no,—after spending a great deal
of money on his war with you, when he had taken Potidaea
, and could have kept it if he chose, he made them a
present of the place, without even attempting any other course.
