coinage instead. On their complaining, he told them that all the merchants and retailers would accept it in lieu of silver. But the merchants he instructed to buy in turn with the copper they received such produce of the land as was for sale, as well as any booty brought to them; such copper as remained on their hands he would exchange for silver.During the campaign of CorcyraApparently in 375 B.C.

His men demanded their pay; refused to obey his orders; and declared they would desert to the enemy. Accordingly he summoned a meeting and told them that the stormy weather was delaying the arrival of the silver he expected; meanwhile, as he had on hand

You made no allowance for Timotheus,The following passage is repeated almost word for word in the speech against Philocles (Din. 3.17). Timotheus, an Athenian general and a friend of Isocrates, who recounts his exploits (Isoc. 15.107-113), sailed round the Peloponnese and gained a victory at Corcyra in 375 B.C. In 365 he took Samos, which was occupied by a Persian garrison, after a ten months' siege (Dem. 15.9). Thence he moved to Thrace and mastered several Chalcidian cities, of which Dinarchus here mentions three. In 356 he was sent out with two others to reinforce the fleet of Chares who was trying to crush an allied revolt; but in a sea battle near Chios he failed to help Chares, owing to stormy weather, and

led the Sacred BandThe Sacred Band was a company of 300 picked soldiers maintained by the state. They first attracted attention by defeating a Spartan force in 375 B.C. and played a large part in the victory of Leuctra. At Chaeronea they fought to the last man and were buried by the highway from Phocis to Thebes with the figure of a lion over their tomb. and Epaminondas and their compeers were in command. It was then that Thebes won the battle of Leuctra, then that they invaded the Spartans' country which, it was thought, could not be ravaged. During that period they accomplished many fine achievements: founded Messene in the four hundredthMessenia was first conquered about the year 700 B.C., so that the figure 400th is a very rough estimate; 300th would be nea

the Athenians, realizing the necessity that was upon them, went on board their ships themselves, joined battle with Pollis under the leadership of Chabrias, and were victorious in the battle. Thus the corn was brought in for the Athenians. Again,375 B.C. while the Lacedaemonians were preparing to transport an army across the gulf to proceed against the Boeotians, the Thebans requested the Athenians to send an expedition around Peloponnesus, believing that if this were done it would not be possibd the territory of Thebes in the year when Cleombrotus was in command of the army and did not do so in the year when Timotheus made his voyage, the Thebans boldly undertook expeditions against the neighbouring cities of Boeotia and recovered them375 B.C. a second time. As for Timotheus, after he had sailed round Peloponnesus he brought Corcyra at once under his control; he did not, however, enslave the inhabitants or banish individuals or change the government. As a result of this he made all th

The Athenians and Lacedaemonians, then, were375 B.C. occupied with these things. As for the Thebans, after they had subdued the cities in Boeotia they made an expedition into Phocis also. And when the374 B.C. Phocians, on their side, sent ambassadors to Lacedaemon and said that unless the Lacedaemonians came to their assistance they would not be able to escape yielding to the Thebans, thereupon the Lacedaemonians sent Cleombrotus, the king, across to Phocis by sea, and with him four regiments of their own and the corresponding contingents Four regiments was two-thirds of the Spartan army; each one of the allies was therefore required to send out the same fraction of its total forces. of the allies. At about this time Polydamas of Pharsalus also arrived from Thessaly and presented himself before the general assembly of the Lacedaemonians. This man was not only held in very high repute throughout all Thessaly, but in his own city was regarded as so honourable a man that, when the Pharsal

IUNO LUCINA, AEDES (qhsauro/s Dionys.): a temple built in 375 B.C. (Plin. NH xvi. 235) in a grove (lucus) that had been consecrated to the goddess from very early times (Varro, LL v. 49, 74, who assigns the introduction of the cult to Titus Tatius; Dionys. iv. 15). It was on the Cispius, near the sixth shrine of the Argei (Varro, LL v. 50; Ov. Fast. ii. 435-436; iii. 245-246), probably not far west of S. Prassede and just north-west of the Torre Cantarelli, in which neighbourhood inscrip. ed the gifts for new-born children to be placed in the treasury of this temple (Dionys. iv. 15:e)s to\n th=s ei)leiqui/as qhsauro\n h(\n (rwmai=ai kalou=siv (/*hrav *fwsforon), so that there may have been a shrine of some sort before that built in 375.

restoration. (Thuc. 1.111.) He had been expelled either by the Thessalians or more probably by a faction of his own family, who wished to exclude him from the dignity of *basileu/s (i. e. probably Tagus), for such feuds among the Aleuadae themselves are frequently mentioned. (Xen.. Anab. 1.1.10.) After the end of the Peloponnesian war, another Thessalian family, the dynasts of Pherae, gradually rose to power and influence, and gave a great shock to the power of the Aleuadae. As early as B. C. 375, Jason of Pherae, after various struggles, succeeded in raising himself to the dignity of Tagus. (Xen. Hell. 2.3.4; Diod. 14.82, 15.60.) When the dynasts of Pherae became tyrannical, some of the Larissaean Aleuadae conspired to put an end to their rule, and for this purpose they invited Alexander, king of Macedonia, the son of Amyntas. (Diod. 15.61.) Alexander took Larissa and Crannon, but kept them to himself. Afterwards, Pelopidas restored the original state of things in Thessaly; but th
Ara'ros (*)Ararw/s), an Athenian comic poet of the middle comedy, was the son of Aristophanes, who first introduced him to public notice as the principal actor in the second Plutus (B. C. 388), the last play which he exhibited in his own name: he wrote two more comedies, the *Kw/kalos and the *Ai)olosi/kwn, which were brought out in the name of Araros (Arg. ad Plut. iv. Bekker), probably very soon after the above date. Araros first exhibited in his own name B. C. 375. (Suidas, s. v.) Suidas mentions the following as his comedies: *Kaineu/s, *Kampuli/wn, *Pano\s gonai/, *(Ume/naios, *)/Adwnis, *Parqenni/dion. All that we know of his dramatic character is contained in the following passage of Alexis (Athen. 3.123e.), who, however, was his rival: kai\ ga\r *Bou/lomai u(/dato/s se geu=sai: pra=gma d' e)sti/ moi me/ga fre/ator e)/ndon yuxro/teron *)Araro/tos.

er to obtain for him a supply of money, or to bring about a peace; and in 371 accordingly we find him at Sparta with the ambassadors,--himself apparently without that title,-- who were empowered to negotiate peace for Athens. On this occasion Xenophon records a speech delivered by him after those of Callias and Autocles, and the only pertinent and sensible one of the three. (Xen. Hell. 6.3. §§ 3, 10, &c.; see Diod. 15.38, 51, who in the former passage assigns the mission of Callistratus to B. C. 375, confounding the peace of 371 with that of 374, and placing the latter a year too soon.) Again, in 369, the year of the invasion of Laconia by Epaminondas, Callistratus induced the Athenians to grant the aid which the Spartans had sent to ask. (Dem. c. Neaer. p. 1353; comp. Xen. Hell. 6.5.33, &c.) To B. C. 366 we may with most probability refer his famous speech on the affair of Oropus,--a speech which is said to have excited the emulation of Demosthenes, and caused him to devote himself t
