A general of [the] Athenians.[1] This man, with quite ready zealousness at the critical time in the war against the Macedonians and with his good fortune failing, proceeds against the enemy and makes a rash charge. He is struck by a rock on the head in an unguarded moment and falls along the battle array.[2]
