1 Dinarchus, like Aeschines, is distorting the facts. （Cf. Aeschin. 3 85 sq. and schol. ad loc.）. The cities of Euboea had entered the Athenian alliance in 357 B.C., but in 348 they revolted, probably owing to the intrigues of Philip with whom Athens was now at war over Olynthus. Taurosthenes and Callias commanded the army of Chalcis and the Athenians lost control of the island. In 343 however they transferred the allegiance of Chalcis to Athens, and a few years later-the exact date is not certain-were made Athenian citizens on the motion of Demosthenes （cf. Hyp. 5 col. 20）, whom Aeschines says they bribed.
