98. First of all under the leadership of Cimon, the son of Miltiades, the Athenians besieged and1 took Eion upon the Strymon, then in the hands of the Persians, and sold the2 inhabitants into slavery. [2] The same fate befell Scyros, an island in the Aegean inhabited by Dolopes; this they colonised themselves. [3] They also made war on the Carystians of Euboea, who, after a time, capitulated; the other Euboeans took no part in the war. [4] Then the Naxians3 revolted, and the Athenians made war against them and reduced them by blockade. This was the first of the allied cities which was enslaved contrary to Hellenic right; the turn of the others came later.

2 The Athenians subject Eion, Scyros, Carystus, Naxos.
