Σαρδίων. H. here as always (except in c. 127) calls the satrapy ‘Sardis’, not ‘Lydia’ (v. 25 et pass., and Thuc. i. 115. 4); so too the Persian name for it was Cparda.

παθών. Diodorus (x. 16 (ii. 206 Teubner)), however, says that Polycrates had given provocation by murdering some Lydians to obtain their wealth.


Dascyliun was capital of the Hellespontine satrapy (Thuc. i. 129. 1; Xen. Hell. iv. 1. 15); cf. App. I.
