I fought in the battle of Mantineia, not without honour to myself or credit to the city. I took part in the expeditions to Euboea,1 and at the battle of Tamynae2 as a member of the picked corps I so bore myself in danger that I received a wreath of honour then and there, and another at the hands of the people on my arrival home; for I brought the news of the Athenian victory, and Temenides, taxiarch3 of the tribe Pandionis, who was despatched with me from camp, told here how I had borne myself in the face of the danger that befell us.
