Embassy from Sparta
AT this time also it happened that the embassy, which the
B. C. 190. Embassy from Sparta, and the answer of the Roman Senate.
Lacedaemonians had sent to Rome, returned
disappointed. The subject of their mission
was the hostages and the villages. As to the
villages the Senate answered that they would give
instructions to envoys sent by themselves; and
as to the hostages they desired to consider further. But as to
the exiles of past times, they said that they wondered why they
were not recalled, now that Sparta had been freed from her
tyrants. . . .
