The scene is the Hellespont. not many days later, Thymochares411 B.C. came from Athens with a few ships; and thereupon the Lacedaemonians and the Athenians fought another naval battle, and the Lacedaemonians were victorious, under the leadership of Agesandridas. Shortly after this, at the beginning of the winter, Dorieus, the son of Diagoras, sailed into the Hellespont from Rhodes with fourteen ships, arriving at daybreak. And when t
Now Mindarus caught sight of the battle as he was sacrificing to Athena at Ilium, and hurrying to the sea he launched his triremes and set out, in order to pick up the ships under Dorieus.
And the Athenians set out against him and did battle,411 B.C. along the strand near Abydus, from morning till late afternoon. They were at some points victorious and at others defeated, when Alcibiades sailed into the Hellespont to their support, with eighteen ships.

And in fact Samius did zealously just what Cyrus asked of him: he sailed round to Cil
ler of Cilicia, to oppose Cyrus by land in his march against the Persian king.
As to how Cyrus collected an army and with this army made the march up country against his brother,Artaxerxes. how the battleAt Cunaxa, near Babylon, in the autumn of 401 B.C. was fought, how Cyrus was slain, and how after that the Greeks effected their return in safety to the sea—all this has been written by ThemistogenesUnknown except for this reference.
