after entering Thessaly as a friend and
ally, he seized Pherae and still retains it; and lastly, he informed those poor
wretches, the people of Oreus, that he had sent his soldiers to pay them a visit
of sympathy in all goodwill, for he understood that they were suffering from
acute internal trouble, and it was the duty of true friends and allies to be at
their side on such occasions.
