Diodorus Siculus, Library, Book XV, Chapter 14 (search)
384 B.C.At the conclusion of the year, in Athens Diotrephes was archon and in Rome the consuls elected were Lucius Valerius and Aulus Mallius, and the Eleians celebrated the Ninety-ninth Olympiad, that in which Dicon of Syracuse won the "stadion." This year the Parians, who had settled Pharos, allowed the previous barbarian inhabitants to remain unharmed in an exceedingly well fortified place, while they themselves founded a city by the sea and built a wall about it. Later, however, the old barbarian inhabitants of the island took offence at the presence of the Greeks and called in the Illyrians of the opposite mainland. These, to the number of more than ten thousand, crossed over to Pharos in many small boats, wrought havoc, and slew many of the Greeks. But the governor of Lissus appointed by Dionysius sailed with a good number of triremes against the light craft of the Illyrians, sinking some and capturing others, and slew more than

in the first sentence the word *xena/rkhs has displaced some other name, now lost to us. Lycinus, Arcesilaus, and Lichas his son. Xenarces succeeded in winning other victories, at Delphi, at Argos and at Corinth. Lycinus brought foals to Olympia, and when one of them was disqualified, entered his foals for the race for full-grown horses, winning with them. He also dedicated two statues at Olympia, works of MyronMyron flourished about 460 B.C., and the race for foals was not introduced till 384 B.C. Hence, either the Greek text must be emended, or some other Myron, and not the earlier sculptor of that name, must be referred to here. the Athenian. As for Arcesilaus and his son Lichas, the father won two Olympic victories; his son, because in his time the Lacedaemonians were excluded from the games, entered his chariot in the name of the Theban people, and with his own hands bound the victorious charioteer with a ribbon. For this offence he was scourged by the umpires, and on account of

masistratus, he wrote a treatise abusing Athenians, Lacedaemonians and Thebans alike. He imitated the style of Theopompus with perfect accuracy, inscribed his name upon the book and sent it round to the cities. Though Anaximenes was the author of the treatise, hatred of Theopompus grew throughout the length of Greece. Moreover, Anaximenes was the first to compose extemporary speeches, though I cannot believe that he was the author of the epic on Alexander.Sotades at the ninety-ninth Festival384 B.C. was victorious in the long race and proclaimed a Cretan, as in fact he was. But at the next Festival he made himself an Ephesian, being bribed to do so by the Ephesian people. For this act he was banished by the Cretans. The first athletes to have their statues dedicated at Olympia were Praxidamas of Aegina, victorious at boxing at the fifty-ninth Festival544 B.C., and Rexibius the Opuntian, a successful pancratiast at the sixty-first Festival536 B.C.. These statues stand near the pillar of

zealously than when they were under a democratic government. Thus ended the affair of the Mantineans, whereby men were made wiser in this point at least — not to let a river run through city walls. And now the exiles from Phlius, as they observed384 B.C. that the Lacedaemonians were investigating to see what sort of friends their several allies had proved to be to them during the war, thinking that it was an opportune time, proceeded to Lacedaemon and set forth that so long as they were at home and its people had gone with them on their campaigns wherever they led the way; but that after the Phliasians had driven them into exile, they had declined to follow anywhere, and had refused to receive the Lacedaemonians — and them alone of all384 B.C. men — within their gates. When the ephors heard these things, they decided that the matter deserved attention. Accordingly they sent to the city of the Phliasians and said that the exiles were friends of the Lacedaemonian state and had been exil<

when the Romans would long for Camillus. And in fact this came Y.R. 365 to pass very soon, for when the Gauls captured the city, the B.C. 389 people fled for succor to Camillus and again chose him Dictator, as has been told in my Gallic history.Livy, v. 32 seq. Plutarch, Life of Camillus. FROM PEIRESC When Marcus Manlius, the patrician, saved the city of Rome from a Gallic invasion, he received the highest honors. Y.R. 370 At a later period when he saw an old man, who had often B.C. 384 fought for his country, reduced to servitude by a money lender, he paid the debt for him. Being highly commended for this act, he released all his own debtors from their obligations. His glory being much increased thereby, he paid the debts of many others. Being much elated by his popularity, he even proposed that all debts should be cancelled, or that the people should sell the lands that had not yet been distributed and apply the proceeds for the relief of debtors.

the comitia were being held in the campus Martius, to watch for the signal displayed on the Janiculum of an approaching enemy (Cass. Dio xxxvii. 28). Another signal-vexillum russi coloris-was raised on the arx, to which reference is frequently made (Liv. iv. 18. 6; xxxix. 15. II ; Fest. 103; Macrob. i. 16. 15; Serv. Aen. viii. 1), and the trumpet blown (Varro vi. 92). Titus Tatius is said to have lived on the arx (Solin. i. 21), and also M. Manlius Capitolinus, whose house was destroyed in 384 B.C., when the senate decreed that henceforth no patrician should dwell on the arx or Capitolium (Liv. v. 47. 8; vi. 20. 13). On the site of this house, Camillus erected the temple of IUNO MONETA (q.v.) in 344 B.C. One other temple certainly stood on the arx, that of Concord dedicated in 217 B.C., and possibly two others, of VEIOVIS and HONOS ET VIRTUS (qq.v.). There is no record of any other public buildings on the arx, but on its north-east corner was the AUGURACULUM (q.v.), a grassy open sp

M. MANLIUS CAPITOLINUS, DOMUS on the arx, on the site of the later temple of Juno Moneta. The house was destroyed in 384 B.C. by order of the senate (Liv. vi. 20. 13 ; vii. 28. 5; Ov. Fast. vi. 185).

Furius Camillus during the war with the Aurunci in 345 B.C., erected by duoviri appointed by the senate pro amplitudine populi Romani, and dedicated in 344 (Liv. vii. 28. 4-6). It was on the arx, on the site formerly occupied by the house of M. MANLIUS CAPITOLINUS (q.v.), which had been destroyed in 384 B.C. (Liv. vi. 20. 13; Val. Max. vi. 3. I; Ov. Fast. i. 638; vi. 34, 183). Titus Tatius is also said to have lived on this site (Plut. Rom. 20; Solin. i. 21). The temple was dedicated on 1st June (Ov. Fast. vi. 183; Macrob. i. 12. 30; Hemer.
