See especially Dem. 16.9. at the cost of losing our own alliesSuch powerful states as Chios, Byzantium, and Rhodes were lost to the Athenian Confederacy by the peace following the “Social War.” Of the seventy-five cities which belonged to the Confederacy the majority remained loyal. See Isoc. 7.2.; and yet to celebrate the good news of such accomplishments we have twice now offered grateful sacrifices to the gods,Diodorus (Dio.
