Son of Miltiades,[1] he led an expedition as general against the barbarians who had come down [sc. to the coast] with Themistokles.[2] He sailed to Cyprus and Pamphylia and waged war, and he was victorious at the Eurymedon River on both land and sea in the same day.[3] This man also [sc. later] assigned territorial limitations to the barbarians: no Persian ship was to sail beyond the Kyaneaian and Chelidonian [islands] and Phaselis -- a city in Pamphylia -- in military action[4], nor were Persian kings to travel within a day's ride of the sea; and the Greeks were to be autonomous, including those in Asia.[5] He died in Kition in Cyprus.[6]
