Kos[s]as was a just man, a native of Pellene. These Pelleneans were at war with the Salaminians and called on their neighbours as allies, having promised to give them a share of the [Salaminian] territory. Once they had won, however, they did not hand it over, even though Kos[s]as was advising them in this to abide by their agreements. The result was that when the Pelleneans fell victim to plague they took to praising "the words of Kos[s]as".
