Headword: Kroisos
Adler number: kappa,2497
Translated headword: Kroisos, Croesus
Vetting Status: high
[Croesus] was a native Lydian, son of Alyattes, [and] ruler of the peoples to the west of[1] the river Halys. This man [was] the first of the non-Greeks, to my knowledge, who compelled some of the Greeks to pay him tribute and made the others his allies. Prior to the reign of Croesus all the Greeks had been free. For the Kimmerian expedition against Ionia, earlier than Croesus,[2] was not an overthrow of the cities but [sc. mere] plundering arising from a raid.
