1. IN the following summer, when the corn was in full ear, the Peloponnesians and their allies,1 under the command of Archidamus, the son of Zeuxidamus, the Lacedaemonian2 king, invaded Attica, and encamping wasted the country. [2] The Athenian cavalry as usual attacked them whenever an opportunity offered, and prevented the great body of the light-armed troops from going beyond their lines and injuring the lands near the city. [3] The invaders remained until their supplies were exhausted; they were then disbanded, and returned to their several homes.
