Hippias ruled three years longer over the Athenians.  In the fourth year he was deposed by the Lacedaemonians2 and the exiled Alcmaeonidae. He retired under an agreement, first to Sigeum, and then to Aeantides at Lampsacus. From him he went to the court of Darius, whence returning twenty years later with the Persian army he took part in the expedition to Marathon, being then an old man.
