Heracleides

16. Of Maronea, a Greek who had attached himself to the service of the Thracian chief Seuthes and was residing with him at the time that Xenophon and the remains of the Ten Thousand arrived in Thrace after their memorable retreat, B. C. 300. Heracleides was entrusted with the charge of disposing of the booty that had been acquired by the Greeks and Thracians in common, but kept back for his own use a considerable part of the money produced by the sale of it. This fraudulent conduct, together with the calumnious insinuations which he directed against Xenophon, when the latter urged with vigour the just claims of his troops, became the chief cause of the dissensions that arose between Scuthes and his Greek mercenaries. (Xen. Anab. 7.3, 4, 5, 6.)
