Out of the spoils, Lysander set up at Delphi bronze statues of himself and each of his admirals, as well as golden stars of the Dioscuri, which disappeared before the battle of Leuctra.1 And in the treasury of Brasidas and the Acanthians2 there was stored a trireme two cubits long, made of gold and ivory, which Cyrus sent Lysander as a prize for his victory.

1 An omen of the defeat of the Spartans in that battle (371 B.C.).

2 Cf. Plut. Lys. 1.1.
