Delium was captured seventeen days after the battle. The Athenian herald came shortly1
afterwards in ignorance of its fate to ask again for the dead, and now the Boeotians, instead of repeating their former answer, gave them up. In the battle the Boeotians lost somewhat less than five hundred;
the Athenians not quite a thousand, and Hippocrates their general; also a great number of light-armed troops and baggage-bearers.
Shortly after the battle of Delium, Demosthenes, on the failure of the attempt to betray2
Siphae, against which he had sailed with forty ships3
, employed the Agraean and Acarnanian troops together with four hundred Athenian hoplites whom he had on board in a descent on the Sicyonian coast.
Before all the fleet had reached the shore the Sicyonians came out against the invaders, put to flight those who had landed, and pursued them to their ships, killing some, and making prisoners of others. They then erected a trophy, and gave back the dead under a flag of truce.
While the affair of Delium was going on, Sitalces the Odrysian king died; he had been engaged in an expetition against the Triballi, by whom he was defeated in battle. Seuthes the son of Sparadocus4
his nephew, succeeded him in the kingdom of the Odrysians and the rest of his Thracian dominions.
