[5] Again, Argileonis, the mother of Brasidas, when some Amphipolitans who had come to Sparta paid her a visit, asked them if Brasidas had died nobly and in a manner worthy of Sparta. Then they greatly extolled the man and said that Sparta had not such another, to which she answered: ‘Say not so, Strangers; Brasidas was noble and brave, but Sparta has many better men than he.’
