Philip Vandalizes Thermus
Philip loudly lamented his ill-fortune in having so
narrowly missed getting Attalus into his
hands. . . .
On his way to the lake Trichonis Philip arrived
at Thermus, where there was a temple of Apollo;
and there he once more defaced all the sacred
buildings which he had spared on his former
occupation of the town. In both instances it was an ill-advised indulgence of temper: for it is a mark
of utter unreasonableness to commit an act of impiety against heaven
in order to gratify one's wrath against man. . . .
