The golden acinaces was among the regular royal gifts (iii. 84. n.; Xen. Anab. i. 2. 27, 8. 29), the royal tiara of golden tissue naturally was not. For similar gifts cf. iii. 20. 1; vii. 116. τὴν ζώνην. Cf. the oath of Histiaeus, v. 106. 6. Ἄβδηρα. For its site cf. vii. 109. 1 n. The sense is ‘Abdera is nearer the Hellespont than is the Strymon’.
