When Conon and Pharnabazus with the Great King's fleet were masters of the sea and were ravaging the coasts of Laconia, and after the walls of Athens had been rebuilt with the money which Pharnabazus furnished, 1 the Lacedaemonians decided to make peace with the king of Persia. To that end, they sent Antalcidas to Tiribazus, 2 and in the most shameful and lawless fashion handed over to the King the Greeks resident in Asia, in whose behalf AgesilaĆ¼s had waged war. AgesilaĆ¼s, therefore, could have had no part at all in this infamy.

1 In 393 B.C. ( Xenophon, Hell. iv. 8,10).
