If there should be mention also of slighter matters,1 first, by virtue of their naval power, the Athenians have mingled with various peoples and discovered types of luxury. Whatever the delicacy in Sicily, Italy, Cyprus, Egypt, Lydia, Pontus, the Peloponnese, or anywhere else, -- all these have been brought together into one place by virtue of naval power.

1 Cf. Pericles in the Funeral Oration: Thuc. 2.38, on luxuries and delights, and on the presence in Athens of good things from everywhere.
