Note:
Not classified by Adler as a proverb (or extant in the paroemiographers), but it has the look of one. In any event, it is a version of a scholion on Thucydides 1.29.1 (where the Corinthians send a herald to declare war on the Corcyreans).
Keywords: daily life; ethics; historiography; history; military affairs; proverbs
