Alcibiades had no sooner sailed away than he robbed the Athenians of Messana.1

There was a party there who were on the point of surrendering the city to the Athenians, but Alcibiades knew them, and gave the clearest information of their design to the friends of Syracuse in the city, and so brought the thing to naught. Arrived at Thurii, he left his trireme and hid himself so as to escape all quest.

1 In September, 415 B.C.
