I might go on and endeavor to speak at greater length on how you could carry on the war so as to triumph most quickly over the power of the King; but as things are, I fear that I might lay myself open to criticism if, having had no part in a soldier's life, I should now venture to advise you, whose achievements in war are without parallel in number and magnitude. Therefore on this subject I think I need say nothing more.

But to proceed with the rest of my discourse, I believe that both your own father1 and the founder of your kingdom,2 and also the progenitor of your race3— were it lawful for Heracles and possible for the others to appear as your counsellors—would advise the very things which I have urged.

1 Amyntas. II.

2 Perdiccas I. See 32, note.

3 Heracles. The latter was precluded by his divinity; Amyntas and Perdiccas by their death.
