This was the alliance.After this the Chians immediately manned ten more vessels and sailed for
Anaia, in order to gain intelligence of those in Miletus, and also to make
the cities revolt.
A message, however, reaching them from Chalcideus to tell them to go back
again, and that Amorges was at hand with an army by land, they sailed to the
temple of Zeus, and there sighting ten more ships sailing up with which
Diomedon had started from Athens after Thrasycles,
fled, one ship to Ephesus, the rest to Teos.The Athenians took four of their ships empty, the men finding time to
escape ashore; the rest took refuge in the city of the Teians; after which the Athenians sailed off to Samos,
while the Chians put to sea with their remaining vessels, accompanied by
the land forces, and caused Lebedos to revolt, and after it Erae.After this they both returned home, the fleet and the army.
