Herodotus [writes]: "[Harpagos] took Histiaios by live-capture [...]. He was captured alive in this manner: [...] as he was fleeing he was seized by a Persian man, and being taken by him he was about to be stabbed. Speaking in the Persian language he made himself known, that he was Histiaios of Miletus."[1]
And elsewhere: "giving ransoms on behalf of these people, as much as he was able."[2]
