Well, is that what he did?
By no means. For seven whole months he persisted in making war on us, openly
displaying his hostility and withholding even the language of goodwill. At the
outset we took anchorage at Perinthus with only ten ships, having heard that he
was in the neighborhood, and hoping to meet him and talk matters over. He waited
till our men were having their breakfast, and then tried to take our ships,
killed a number of our sailors, and hunted every man of them into the sea with
his cavalry and light infantry.
