[9] And we consider it in a far greater degree incumbent upon all those among you who belonged to the city1 party that you should zealously take the field against the Lacedaemonians. For the Lacedaemonians, after establishing you as an oligarchy and making you objects of hatred to the commons, came with a great force, ostensibly as your allies, and delivered you over to the democrats. Consequently, in so far as it depended upon them, you would certainly have perished, but the commons here saved you.

1 Cp. II. iv. 11, 24, etc.
