City of Arcadia.
Agesilaus, then, when his sacrifices at the frontier proved favourable, at once
proceeded to march against Arcadia. And having occupied Eutaea, which was a city
on the border...But since none of the Arcadians appeared, he continued his march
as rapidly as possible to Eutaea, even though it was very late, with the desire
of getting his hoplites away before they even saw the enemy's fires, so that no
one could say that he had withdrawn in flight.
