τες αὐτὸν τοῖς ὄρκοις οὕς τὰ τέλη τῶν
λακεδαιμονίων ὀμόσαντα αὐτὸν ἐξέ-
πεμψαν, ἦ μὴν εὔεσθαι ξυμμάχους αὐ-
τονόμους οὑς ἂν προσαγάγηται, οὕτω

στερον καὶ στάγειρος ἀνδρέων ἀποικία

χειμῶνος ἐυθὺς ἀρχομένου ὡς τῶ ἱπ-
ποκράτει καὶ δημοσθένει στρατηγοῖς

Not long after, Stagirus, a colony of the Andrians, followed their example and revolted. Such were the events of this summer. It was in the first days of the winter following [...] into the hands of the Athenian generals, Hippocrates and Demosthenes [...]"
