He began the rebellion2 at Mareia, a city opposite the island of Pharos, and, having made himself ruler of the country, called in the Athenians.

They sailed from the sea into the Nile, and, making themselves masters of the river and of two-thirds of Memphis, proceeded to attack the remaining part called3 the White Castle, in which some of the Persians and Medes had taken refuge, and with them such Egyptians as had not joined in the revolt.
