"Camillus the Roman general[1] became an object of the greatest jealousy to the citizens and was indicted by the tribunes, on a charge of not having benefited the public treasury with the plunder of the enemies;[2] and he withdrew voluntarily before the trial." So [writes] Dio.[3]
And Herodotus [writes]: "he was seized with fear of the Spartiates and withdrew to Thessaly. From there he entered Arcadia and stirred up revolution."[4] So 'he withdrew' stands for he fled, he escaped.
Greek Original:
Ὑπεξέσχεν: ἀφίκετο. ὅτι Κάμιλλος ὁ τῶν Ῥωμαίων στρατηγὸς ἐπιφθονώτατος τοῖς πολίταις γενόμενος ἐγράφη ὑπὸ τῶν δημάρχων, ὡς μηδὲν ἐκ τῆς λείας τῶν πολεμίων τὸ δημόσιον ὠφελήσας: καὶ ἑκουσίως πρὸ τῆς δίκης ὑπεξέσχεν. οὕτω Δίων. καὶ Ἡρόδοτος: ὁ δὲ δεῖμα ἔλαβε Σπαρτιητέων καὶ ὑπεξέσχεν ἐς Θεσσαλίην. ἐντεῦθεν ἀφικόμενος ἐς τὴν Ἀρκαδίαν νεώτερα ἔπρησσε πρήγματα. ὑπεξέσχεν οὖν, ἀντὶ τοῦ, ἔφυγεν, ἀπέδρασεν.
