Neither Themistokles nor Miltiades had ever been so honoured.
The same tale might be repeated about Cimon, Themistocles, Miltiades.
Yet in the council of their generals the word of Miltiades was given for battle, whereto the rest consented.
What crime in all this had Miltiades committed against the Athenians?
This, we are told by Stesimbrotus, he effected after quelling the opposition of Miltiades, who spoke on the other side.
This comate was no less a person than Cimon, the son of the great Miltiades.
When Miltiades was dead, Cimon found that he could not receive his father's body for honorable interment unless he paid the fine.
The messengers did return to find the son of Miltiades was no more.
Not gratitude or ingratitude—but justice or injustice—is the issue to be tried between Miltiades and the Athenian assembly.
Miltiades and the others reached Athens, and found there a new danger.
