Attempt of the Athenians to win back Amphipolis.

1. τελευτῶντι; when it was near the end, pred. Cf. i.30.13.—Εὐετίων: not elsewhere mentioned.

μετὰ Περδίκκου: as the help of Thracian Chalcidians held out to him by the Lacedaemonians had not come, Perdiccas had no doubt, though no mention is made of it, made peace and alliance with the Athenians, in order that his country might no longer be exposed to hostilities from them (cf. vi. 7. § 3, 4). See Weissenborn, Hellen. Beitr. p. 173, and Introd. to Book V. p. 19 ff.

Θρᾳξι πολλοῖς: without doubt mercenaries from the surrounding regions. Cf. c. 27. § 1; v. 6. § 2.

περικομίσας: doubtless out of the port Eion. Cf. iv.106.17; v.6.2; 10. 16.—ἐκ τοῦ ποταμοῦ: belongs to ἐπολιόρκει.

Ἱμεραίου : not otherwise known. Weissenborn says, “Probably on the right bank of the river above the bridge.”
