'[...] and the removing of pitch from the baths and the driving out of the hair-pluckers, with the aim of restoring the old ways in every respect. As a result there was a revival of the wrestling-schools, training in earnest, and a return to the common messes; and Lacedaemon became like her [sc. old] self.'[1]

[1] The quotation is from Philostratus, Life of Apollonius of Tyana 4.27. See epsilon 3955 with note 3, and cf. phi 366. I have translated spoudai/ in the sense of 'earnest' or 'serious'. LSJ s.v. spoudh/ II.3 cites this passage for the meaning 'disputation', but this is clearly inappropriate in the context.
