[6] Lysander took three thousand men prisoners, together with their generals, and captured the whole fleet, excepting the Paralus1 and the ships that had made their escape with Conon. So after plundering his enemy's camp and taking their ships in tow, he sailed back to Lampsacus, to the sound of pipes and hymns of victory. He had wrought a work of the greatest magnitude with the least toil and effort, and had brought to a close in a single hour a war which, in length, and the incredible variety of its incidents and fortunes, surpassed all its predecessors.

1 One of the sacred state-galleys. It now carried the news of the disaster to Athens (Xen. Hell. 2.1.28).
