For Latin Prose.

Perceiving their condition, Gylippus sent them a herald, with a proclamation inviting all the islanders among them to come forth from the rest, and promising them freedom if they did so. The inhabitants of some cities, yet not many a fact much to their honour-availed themselves of this offer and surrendered. Presently however a larger negotiation was opened, which ended by the entire division capitulating upon terms, and giving up their arms. Gylippus and the Syracusans engaged that the lives of all should be spared, that is, that none should be put to death either by violence or by intolerable bonds or by starvation. Having been all disarmed they were forthwith carried away as prisoners to Syracuse-6000 in number. Disdaining either to surrender or to make any stipulation for himself personally, Demosthenes was on the point of killing himself with his own sword; but his intention was prevented, and he was carried off a disarmed prisoner by the Syracusans.
