He died while besieging Citium, of sickness, as most say.1 But some say it was of a wound which he got while fighting the Barbarians. As he was dying he bade those about him to sail away at once and to conceal his death. And so it came to pass that neither the enemy nor the allies understood what had happened, and the force was brought back in safety ‘under the command of Cimon,’ as Phanodemus says, ‘who had been dead for thirty days.’
