The story of Euphron has been told, and I return to the point1
from which I digressed to this subject. While, namely, the Phliasians were still fortifying Thyamia and Chares was still with them, Oropus was seized by those who had been exiled therefrom. When, however, the Athenians had set out in full force against the city and had summoned Chares from Thyamia, the port of the Sicyonians in its turn was recaptured by the citizens of Sicyon themselves and the Arcadians; as for the Athenians,2
none of their allies came to their assistance, and they retired and left Oropus in the possession of the Thebans pending a judicial decision.
