While the several allies were each thus filled with1 proud confidence in themselves, Philiscus of Abydus came from Ariobarzanes2 with a large amount of money. And in the first place he brought together at Delphi the Thebans, their allies, and the Lacedaemonians to negotiate in regard to peace. But when they had arrived there, they did not consult the god at all as to how peace should be brought about, but deliberated for themselves. Since, however, the Thebans would not agree that Messene should be subject to the Lacedaemonians,3 Philiscus set about collecting a large mercenary force in order to make war on the side of the Lacedaemonians.
