These peculiarities may be explained by attributing it to Miltiades, who naturally preferred to mention his neighbours.

For Hippoclus cf. Thuc. vi. 59. 3.


Strattis lived till after 480 B. C.; cf. viii. 132. 2.

Aeaces had already succeeded his father Syloson (iii. 139. seq.; for the name cf. iii. 39. 1 n., and for his later history vi. 13).

For Aristagoras of Cumae cf. v. 37. 1, 38. 1.
