Demosthenes in [the] Philippics and Aristophanes [mention it].[1] Conon[2] set it up first, Iphikrates[3] took it up later, and [so did] Chabrias;[4] using this he[5] massacred the Spartans' division, when Iphikrates was their general and [so was] Kallikles.[6]

Abbreviated from Harpokration s.v., where historiographical sources are also cited (Androtion FGrH 324 F48; Philochorus FGrH 328 F150).
[1] Demosthenes 4.24; Aristophanes, Plutus [Wealth] 173.
[2] See under alpha 3111 (there is no dedicated Konon entry); OCD4 Conon(1).
[3] See iota 770, iota 771, iota 772; OCD4 Iphicrates.
[4] See chi 1 (for what it is worth); OCD4 Chabrias.
[5] So the transmitted text; but "they" (= the Athenians) in the equivalent entry in Harpokration is clearly correct.
[6] 'Kallias in' Harpokration (again correctly: see R. Develin, Athenian Officials 684-321 B.C.) (Cambridge 1989) p.213, under the year 39l/390).
H.W. Parke, Greek Mercenary Soldiers (Oxford 1933 and reprints), esp. pp.49-57.
