They say that after the Thracians had been defeated by Boiotians near Koroneia[1] and sworn a truce to last five days, they made a night attack on the Boiotians, killing some of them and capturing others alive. The Boiotians were outraged, but the Thracians declared that what they had sworn to was the days, not the nights.
