At dawn the Peloponnesians sailed from Teichiussa, and on their arrival at Miletus found that1
the Athenians had left: after remaining one day, on the morrow they took the Chian ships which under the command of Chalcideus had previously been chased into Miletus2
, and resolved to go back to Teichiussa and fetch that part of the tackle of which they had lightened the ships.
There they found Tissaphernes, who had come with his infantry; he persuaded them to sail against Iasus, in which his enemy Amorges lay. So they attacked Iasus, which they took by a sudden assault; for it never occurred to the inhabitants that their ships were not Athenian. The Syracusans distinguished themselves greatly in the action.
The Peloponnesians took captive Amorges the natural son of Pissuthnes, who had rebelled, and gave him to Tissaphernes, that, if he liked, he might convey him to the King in obedience to the royal command3
They then plundered Iasus, and the army obtained a great deal of treasure; for the city had been rich from early times.
They did no harm to the mercenaries of Amorges, but received them into their own ranks; for most of them came. from Peloponnesus. The town, and all their prisoners, whether bond or free, were delivered by them into the hands of Tissaphernes, who engaged to give them a Daric stater4
for each man; they then returned to Miletus.
Thence they despatched by land as far s Erythrae Pedaritus the son of Leon, whom the Lacedaemonians had sent out to be governor of Chios; he was escorted by the mercenaries who had been in the service of Amorges. To remain on the spot, and take charge of Miletus, they appointed Philip. So the summer ended.
