intelligent man who would let words rather than deeds decide the question who is

very start, as soon as peace was concluded, before Diopithes was appointed
general, before the force now in the Chersonese
had been dispatched, proceeded to occupy Serrium and
Doriscus and expelled from the Fort Serreum and the Sacred Mount the garrison
which your own general had posted there.
