For those who lent their money to these
men for the outward voyage from Egypt
to Athens, when they reached
Rhodes and this man put into that
port, suffered no loss, I take it, by remitting the interest and receiving the
amount of their loan at Rhodes, and
then putting the money to work again for a voyage to Egypt. No; this was more to their advantage
than to continue the voyage to this port.
