For all these things Nicias was free from blame, while as general he captured Cythera,1
an island favorably situated for the command of Laconia and inhabited by Lacedaemonians; he captured also many places in Thrace2
which had revolted, and brought them back to their allegiance; having shut up the Megarians in their city he straightway seized the island of Minoa,3
and shortly after, from this base of operations, got possession of Nisaea;4
he also made a descent upon the territory of Corinth,5
defeated the Corinthians in battle and slew many of them, including Lycophron their general.
