While the soldiers were still in session Coeratadas1 the Theban came in, a man who was going up and down Greece, not in exile, but because he was afflicted with a desire to be a general, and he was offering his services to any city or people that might be wanting a general; so at this time he came to the troops and said that he was ready to lead them to the Delta,2 as it is called, of Thrace, where they could get plenty of good things; and until they should reach there, he said he would supply them with food and drink in abundance.

1 cp. Xen. Anab. 7.1.13 and note thereon.

2 i.e. since he was the only Lacedaemonian among the generals.
