62. The allied force, now in possession of Orchomenus, considered against what town they should next proceed; the Eleans wanted them to attack Lepreum, the Mantineans Tegea. The Argives and Athenians sided with the Mantineans; [2] whereupon the Eleans, indignant that they had not voted for the expedition1 against Lepreum, returned home, but the remainder of the allies made preparations at Mantinea to attack Tegea. They were assisted by a party within the walls who were ready to betray the place to them.

1 The Argives and their allies now quarrel among themselves. The Eleans return home; the rest of the allies prepare to attack Tegea.
