[105] For we, being hated by our allies and standing in peril of being enslaved, were saved by the Lacedaemonians;1 and just so they, when all the rest wanted to destroy them, came to us for refuge and were saved through us.2 And yet how can we praise a dominion which subjects us to so miserable an end? How can we fail to abhor and shun a power which has incited these two cities both to do and to suffer many abominable things?

1 See 78.

2 See Isoc. 5.44, note; Isoc. 7.7, note.
