113. Some time afterwards the Athenians, under the command of Tolmides the son of Tolmaeus,1 with a thousand hoplites of their own and contingents of their allies, made2 an expedition against Orchomenus, Chaeronea, and certain other places in Boeotia which were in the hands of oligarchical exiles from different Boeotian towns, and so were hostile to them. They took Chaeronea, and leaving a garrison there, departed. [2] But while they were on their march, the exiles who had occupied Orchomenus, some Locrians, some Euboean exiles and others of the same party, set upon them at Coronea and defeated them, killing many and taking many prisoners. [3] The Athenians then agreed to evacuate the whole of Boeotia upon condition that the prisoners should be restored. [4] And so the Boeotian exiles returned to their homes, and all the Boeotians regained their independence.
