[5] For Lysander, as it appears, had received an oracle running thus:—
Be on thy guard, I bid thee, against a sounding Hoplites,
And an earth-born dragon craftily coming behind thee.
Some, however say that the Hoplites does not flow before Haliartus, but is a winter torrent near Coroneia, which joins the Philarus and then flows past that city; in former times it was called Hoplaas, but now Isomantus.
