Moreover, I cannot discover on reflection
that Cersobleptes, though both barbarous and faithless, is likely to take any
pains not to injure Charidemus so seriously; for when I look backwards and
observe the advantages of which Cotys was going to deprive Iphicrates without
the slightest consideration for him, I really cannot think that Cersobleptes
would trouble himself about the losses that will fall on Charidemus.
