When the season again favoured an incursion into the enemy's country, 1 AgesilaĆ¼s gave out that he would march into Lydia, and this time he was not trying to deceive Tisaphernes. That satrap, however, utterly deluded himself, in that he disbelieved AgesilaĆ¼s because of his former trick, and thought that now, at any rate, the king would attack Caria, although it was ill-suited for cavalry, and he was far inferior in that arm of the service.

1 In the spring of 395 B.C.; cf. Xenophon, Hell. iii. 4, 16 ff.
