Now the decree for his recall had been passed before this,1 on motion of Critias, the son of Callaeschrus, as Critias himself has written in his elegies, where he reminds Alcibiades of the favour in these words:—

Words and writing were mine; this the task I performed;
Signet and seal of words that were mine give warrant as follows.

1 Nearly three years before, in the late autumn of 411 B.C., after the overthrow of the Four Hundred.
