Critic. Comicor. Grsecorum, vol. i. p. 178, &c. Modern writers on Grecian history often repeat'such bitter jests as if they were so much genuine and trustworthy evidence against the person libeled. CHAP. ] OLIGARCHICAL CONSPIRACY. 13 foreign policy according to the interests of Alkibiad£s—or to inspire him with such lively interest in the substitution of oligarchy for democracy at Athens ? This was a question which the oligarchical conspirators at Samos not only never troubled themselves to raise, but which they had every motive to suppress.

He was now however apprised that they could find subsistence no longer, and that they would probably desert, or commit depredations on the coast of his satrapy, or perhaps be driven to hasten on a general action with the Athenians, under desperate circumstances. Under such apprehensions he felt compelled to put himself again in communication with them, to furnish them with pay, and to conclude with them a third convention—the proposition of which he had refused to entertain at Knidus. He therefore went to Kaunus, invited the Peloponnesian leaders to Miletus, and concluded with them near that town a treaty to the following effect:— " In this 13th year of the reign of Darius, and •' ° ReconcihatweenTis^theres°f°s"ne" Third conyention in the ephorship of Alexippidas at Lacedsemon, a concluded r 1 L Thucyd.

In the speech made by Theramenes (the Athenian) during the oligarchy of Thirty, seven years afterwards, it is affirmed that the Athenian people voted the adoption of the oligarchy of Four Hundred, from being told that the Lacedcemonians would never trust a democracy (Xenoph. Hellen. ii. 3, 45). This is thoroughly incorrect—a specimen of the loose assertion of speakers in regard to facts even not very long past. At the moment when Theramenes said this, the question, what political constitution at Athens the Lacedsemonians would please to tolerate, was all-important to the Athenians.
