[4] “I have a friend Anaxibius, gentlemen, and he happens also to be Admiral.1 So if you will send me to him, I presume I can bring back with me ships of war and merchant vessels to carry us; for yourselves, if you really wish to go by sea, wait until I return; and I shall return speedily.” When they heard this, the soldiers were delighted, and voted that Cheirisophus should set sail with all speed.

1 Not “an” admiral, for ναύαρχος was the distinctive title of the commanding officer of the Lacedaemonian fleet.
