Of these the inhabitants of the country have more to say; but Sulla himself has written in the tenth book of his Memoirs, how Quintus Titius, a prominent man among the Romans doing business in Greece, came to him immediately after he had won his victory at Chaeroneia,1 with tidings that Trophonius predicted for him a second battle and victory in that neighbourhood within a short time.2

1 As described in chapter xix.

2 Near Orchomenus, as described in chapter xxi.
