And they did so.For Strombichides, Onomacles, and Euctemon, with thirty galleys and part of those thousand men of arms that went to Miletus, which they carried along with them in vessels for transportation of soldiers, according to their lot went to Chios;and the rest, remaining at Samos with seventy-four galleys, were masters of the sea, and went to Miletus.
