Greek Original:
Ὁμηρεύοντας: Αἰσχίνης ἐν τῷ κατὰ Κτησιφῶντος ἐπὶ τῶν ἄνω πεμφθέντων Λακεδαιμονίων Ἀλεξάνδρῳ. ἦσαν δὲ ν#.
Notes:
An abridgement of the beginning of Harpokration s.v. (which goes on to provide omicron 250, q.v.). There, besides Aeschines 3.133 (which actually has the future participle, "to serve as hostages"), Clitarchus (FGrH 137 F4) is cited for the number fifty.
On this episode, at the end of the abortive revolt of Agis III (330 BC), see in brief A.B. Bosworth, Conquest and Empire: the reign of Alexander the Great (Cambridge 1988) 203-4.
[1] The participle ἀναπεμφθέντων in Harpok. has here become ἄνω πεμφθέντων .
