113.When the town was taken, the most of the Toronaeans were much troubled, because they were not acquainted with the matter;but the conspirators, and such as were pleased with it, joined themselves presently with those that entered.
The Athenians (of which there were about fifty men of arms asleep in the market-place), when they knew what had happened, fled all, except some few that were slain upon the place, some by land, some by water in two galleys that kept watch there, and saved themselves in Lecythus, which was a fort which they themselves held, cut off from the rest of the city to the seaward in a narrow isthmus.
And thither also fled all such Toronaeans as were affected to them.
