Shortly afterwards the Chians manned ten more ships and sailed to Anaea, wanting to hear1
whether the attempt on Miletus had succeeded, and to draw fresh cities into the revolt.
A message however was brought from Chalcideus, bidding them return, and warning them that Amorges was coming thither by land at the head of an army. So they sailed to the Temple of Zeus2
, where they caught sight of sixteen Athenian ships which Diomedon, following Thrasycles, was bringing from Athens.
They instantly fled; one ship to Ephesus, the remainder towards Teos. Four of them the Athenians took empty, the crews having got safe to land; the rest escaped to Teos.
The Athenians then sailed away to Samos. The Chians with their remaining ships put to sea again, and, assisted by the land-forces of their allies3
, caused first Lebedus, and afterwards Erae, to revolt. Both the army and the fleet then returned home.
