Headword: Θρᾳκία παρεύρεσις
Adler number: theta,450
Translated headword: Thracian pretence
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
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.
Greek Original:
Θρᾳκία παρεύρεσις: φασὶ τοὺς Θρᾷκας ἡττηθέντας ὑπὸ Βοιωτῶν παρὰ Κορώνειαν καὶ σπεισαμένους σπονδὰς πενθημέρους ἐπιθέσθαι νυκτὸς τοῖς Βοιωτοῖς καὶ τοὺς μὲν ἀποκτεῖναι, τοὺς δὲ ζωγρῆσαι. ἀγανακτούντων δὲ τῶν Βοιωτῶν, εἰπεῖν τοὺς Θρᾷκας, ὅτι τὰς ἡμέρας, οὐ τὰς νύκτας ἐσπείσαντο.
