Such was the battle, as nearly as possible as
I have described it; the greatest that had occurred for a very long while among the Hellenes,
and joined by the most considerable states.
The Lacedaemonians took up a position in front of the enemy's dead, and
immediately set up a trophy and stripped the slain; they took up their own dead and carried them back to Tegea, where they
buried them, and restored those of the enemy under truce.
The Argives, Orneans, and Cleonaeans had seven hundred killed; the Mantineans two hundred, and the Athenians and Aeginetans also two
hundred, with both their generals.On the side of the Lacedaemonians, the allies did not suffer any loss worth
speaking of: as to the Lacedaemonians themselves it was difficult to learn
the truth; it is said, however, that there were slain about three hundred of them.
