1 The decisive battle was fought at Neon (see Paus. 10.2.4). A good description of the campaign is given by Beloch, Griechische Geschichte （2）, 3.1.250, note 1, and by Pickard-Cambridge, Cambridge Ancient History, 6.215 ff.
2 The last city on the coast of Philip's possessions still belonging to Athens. Diodorus repeats the notice of its capture in chap. 34.4 f. For the date see Beloch, op. cit. 3.2.269 and Pickard-Cambridge, Cambridge Ancient History, 6.219.
3 The correct spelling is Spartocus (Σπάρτοκος) according to Latyschew, Inscr. Ant. Orae Sept. Ponti Eux. p. xviii. Diodorus is probably wrong as to the dates of these reigns. For a discussion see Beloch, op. cit. 3.2.91 ff., with whom Cary, Cambridge Ancient History, 6.71 disagrees.
4 See Livy, 7.16.2-6.
5 Callippus was a member of Plato's Academy (cf. Athenaeus 11.508e; Diogenes Laertius 3.46; Suidas; only "an Athenian" in Plat. L. 7.333e, quoted by Plut. Dion 54) who accompanied his friend Dion to Syracuse. Claiming that Dion was substituting one tyranny for another but actually wishing to get power himself, Callippus effected his assassination. (See Beloch, op. cit. 3.1.261 and note, and Hackforth, Cambridge Ancient History, 6.284 f.) Parallel accounts are Plut. Dion 54-57; Nepos Dion 8-10 (Callicrates sic).
