[3] 27. Χαλκιδέων καὶ Ἐρετριῶν — the date of this war, fought for the possession of the Lelantian plain, is unknown. Herod says that Samos helped Chalcis and Miletus helped Eretria, and of course both sides must have attracted many other allies. The ultimate cause of the war was commercial rivalry. (Busolt i. p. 313.)

1. καὶ τὸ ἄλλο the rest of the Greeks also took sides as allies of the one or the other.
