But Cimon, though like a powerful athlete he had brought down two contests in one day, and though he had surpassed the victory of Salamis with an infantry battle, and that of Plataea with a naval battle, still went on competing with his own victories. Hearing that the eighty Phoenician triremes which were too late for the battle had put in at Hydrus,1 he sailed thither with all speed, while their commanders as yet knew nothing definite about the major force, but were still in distrustful suspense.

1 Hydrus is the name in the MSS., but no such place is known. Syedra is the most probable correction.
