Embassy from Sparta

AT this time also it happened that the embassy, which the
B. C. 190. Embassy from Sparta, and the answer of the Roman Senate.
Lacedaemonians had sent to Rome, returned disappointed. The subject of their mission was the hostages and the villages. As to the villages the Senate answered that they would give instructions to envoys sent by themselves; and as to the hostages they desired to consider further. But as to the exiles of past times, they said that they wondered why they were not recalled, now that Sparta had been freed from her tyrants. . . .
