Polybius, Histories, book 30, Reaction of the Egyptian Kings (search)
Reaction of the Egyptian Kings In Egypt the first thing the kings did after being relieved from the war with Antiochus was to send Numenius, one of their friends, as an envoy to Rome to return thanks for the favours received; and they next released the Lacedaemonian Menalcidas, who had made active use of the occasion against the kingdom for his own advantage; Gaius Popilius Laenas asked the king for his release as a favour to himself.Menalcidas was one of the Romanising party, who appears to have been Strategus of the league in B.C. 153 [Pausan. 7.11.7], and to have committed suicide in B.C. 148-147, in despair at his failure to wrest Sparta from the league. . . . Release of Menalcidas.
