[7.114.1] Well, After you have made these magical rites in the river and, near these s᾽, and many in the city Nine roads hedoni, coloured by the bridge over the Strymon, as they found the banks of zemenes with bridge. And when I learned that this place was called Nine routes, katachwsan living on Earth there nine brave men and nine women of local population. [7.114.2] What is the Persian custom to katachwnoyn on Earth living; so, I have information that the Amistris, the wife of Xerxes, in her old age she did gift to God, katapws believe that reign in the underworld, two eptades boys, sons official Persians, katachwnontas the Earth — was thanks to God that she's life.
[7.115.1] The army was continuing its course of the Strymon; there, at the time that the Sun reigns, on a beach is built the Greek city Clay, He overtook; this area, as she lies on the north-facing, It is called Bisaltia. [7.115.2] Ki apokei, having in his left hand the Bay adjoining the Temple of Poseidon, seemed to be crossing the plain called the Sylews, passing the Greek city and arrived in Akantho Stagiro, incorporating in Expeditionary contingent in a yster᾽ from other armies of all Nations in this region and those who lived around the mountain Pangeo, with the way they had incorporated those who previously gave their catalog: those who resided in their seaside enlisted and incorporated in Navy, While those who dwelled in the landlocked followed pedestrians. [7.115.3] And the way this, ap᾽ whom king Xerxes marched with his army, the Thracians nor dig nor wreak upon the, but show great respect, to our days.
[7.116.1] When Xerxes arrived in Akantho, proclaimed the city of King's Akanthiwn friendly and did gift alfalfa clothing; and did their egkwmio, seeing them to show great zeal for the war effort and having the information about the Canal.
[7.117.1] And Xerxes was in Akantho, happened to die from illness the Inspector of the Canal, the Artachaiis, that was the Special esteem of Xerxes; from origin was Achaimenidis and in stature was the taller Persian (why four fingers were missing to reach the five Royal cubits), and it was the man with the most powerful voice in the world; so Xerxes took his death for great calamity and did the most majestic procession, and grave; and all the army of swreye soil to make Tomb. [7.117.2] Etoyton the Artachaii the S᾽ Akanthioi, yster᾽ from Oracle, offer sacrifices like Demi, screaming his name t᾽. Well hurt the soul of king Xerxes for his Artachaii death.
[7.118.1] Those of the Greeks were in their cities the army and offered dinner on Xerxes, and how bad their not found, so that paratoysan their homes and left hurriedly; for example, When the Thasioi greeted the expeditionary force of Xerxes and offered dinner — and the ᾽kanan this because of cities that were founded on land —, the Antipater, the son of Orgews, a citizen of the first among the first, He had been elected on this, presented the following account: were spent for dinner four hundred silver talents.
[7.119.1] Similar was the accounts that were responsible for managing in other cities. Why being what sorts of about was this dinner, especially since he had ordered from a long time and have great importance: [7.119.2] ap᾽ one, as soon as you listened to the advert by preachers who carried everywhere a round, handed out wheat in cities and all citizens used to grind flour from wheat and barley by working many months; and on the other, siteyan animals, seeking with much cash the first and best, and they fed poultry of land and aquatic straight in coops and pools, to the army; end trapezwsoyn, manufactured gold and silver cups and t᾽ and all other craters that lay on the table. [7.119.3] Of course these things were manufactured for the King and his omotrapezoys, While the rest of the army only what they had ordered for his food. Now, once reached the troop, awaited them a well-pitched scene, We currently have thrown s᾽ Xerxes, While the rest of the army have thrown in the countryside. [7.119.4] And when was the time of the dinner, those who hosted kopsomesiazontan, While the others, kalochortasmenoi and above, went by there at night and the other day they threw down the tent and leaving sikwnontan and getting every time with them all the furniture and utensils; don't leave nothing, they all always.
