This man, when he succeeded to the rule of the Macedonians,[1] was besieged at Lamia in Thessaly[2] by [the] Greeks; but, when the Aitolians withdrew and then the others, he was saved. Having won the victory he demanded the ten orators, whom the Athenians handed over: Demosthenes, Hyperides, Lykourgos, Polyeuktos, Ephialtes, Thrasyboulos, Chares, Charidemos, Diotimos, Patrokles, Kassandros.[3]
