Pausanias carries on the war against the Persians.

Παυσανίας: as guardian of his first cousin Plistarchus, son of Leonidas, administered the government along with the Proclid (Eurypontid) king, Leotychides. The following table gives the genealogy of the Eurysthenid (Agid) house, so far as we are concerned with it in the history of Thuc.

The narrative is continued from c. 89. § 2.

Ἀθηναῖοι: two of the commanders were Aristides and Cimon. Plut. Arist. 23.

Κύπρον: as a chief source of the Persian naval power, Cyprus was naturally attacked by the Greeks.

ἐς Βυζάντιον: depends on ἐστράτευσαν without regard to the paratactic intervening clause.—Μήδων ἐχόντων: see on c. 89. 10.

ἐν τῇδε τῇ ἡγεμονίᾳ: i.e. while Pausanias still held the command; so in c. 128. 17 the capture of Byzantium is ascribed to him immediately after the Cyprian expedition. In vii.15.11 ἐν temporal is used with the same noun. See App.
