[3] While Sulla was tarrying at Athens, his feet were attacked by numbness and a feeling of heaviness, which Strabo says1 is premonitory gout. He therefore crossed the straits to Aedepsus and used the hot waters there, taking a holiday at the same time, and passing his time pleasantly with the theatrical artists. Once, as he was walking along the seashore, certain fishermen brought him some very fine fish. Being delighted with their gift, and learning that they were from Halae, [ldquo ]What![rdquo ] said he, [ldquo ]is any man of Halae still alive?[rdquo ]
