when Philip was moving hither and thither, subduing Illyrians and Triballians,
and some Greeks as well, when he was gradually getting control of large military
resources, and when certain Greek citizens, including Aeschines, were availing
themselves of the liberty of the peace to visit Macedonia
and take bribes, all these movements were really acts
of war upon the states against which Philip was making his preparations. That
they failed to perceive it is another story, and does not concern me.
