31.Astyochus, who was now in Chios requiring hostages in respect of the treason, after he heard of the fleet that was come with Theramenes and that the articles of the league with Tissaphernes were mended, gave over that business, and with ten galleys of Peloponnesus and ten of Chios, went thence and assaulted Pteleum;
but not being able to take it, he kept by the shore to Clazomenae.There he summoned those within to yield, with offer to such of them as favoured the Athenians that they might go up and dwell at Daphnus.And Tamos, the deputy lieutenant of Ionia, offered them the same.
But they not hearkening thereunto, he made an assault upon the city, being unwalled;but when he could not take it, he put to sea again, and with a mighty wind was himself carried to Phocaea and Cume;but the rest of the fleet put in at Marathusa, Pele, and Drimyssa, islands that lie over against Clazomenae.
After they had stayed there eight days in regard of the winds, spoiling and destroying, and partly taking aboard whatsoever goods of the Clazomenians lay without, they went afterwards to Phocaea and Cume to Astyochus.
