First the Athenians besieged and captured
Eion on the Strymon from the Medes, and made slaves of the inhabitants,
being under the command of Cimon, son of Miltiades.
Next they enslaved Scyros the island in the Aegean, containing a Dolopian
population, and colonized it themselves.
This was followed by a war against Carystus, in which the rest of Euboea
remained neutral, and which was ended by surrender on conditions.
After this Naxos left the confederacy, and a war ensued, and she had to
return after a siege; this was the first instance of the engagement being broken by the
subjugation of an allied city, a precedent which was followed by that of the
rest in the order which circumstances prescribed.
