The First Embassy of the Four Hundred to Sparta
Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to revive the opinion that the Four Hundred sent only two embassies to Sparta. The author suggests that the ﬁrst embassy is mentioned in THUC. VIII,71,3, 86,9 and 90,1, that it was sent to Sparta in early July 411, but its members were arrested in Argos while on their way from Sparta to Athens. This chronology corresponds with the contemporary events on Samos.
