[16] When they had reached his doors and were about to go in to dinner, there stood a certain Heracleides, of Maroneia;1 this fellow came up to each single one of the guests who, as he imagined, were able to make a present to Seuthes, first of all to some people of Parium who had come to arrange2 a friendship with Medocus, the king of the Odrysians, and brought gifts with them for him and his wife; to them Heracleides said that Medocus was a twelve days' journey inland from the sea, while Seuthes, now that he had got this army, would be master upon the coast.

1 A Greek city in Thrace.

2 Through the mediation of Seuthes; cp. Xen. Anab. 7.2.32-4.
