                  Aristomenes, the son of one of the Messenian exiles, settled in Arcadia,
                  when about nineteen years of age, happens to be wandering by the sources
                  of the Alpheus with a few other Messenian exiles, and is told by some
                  Arcadian shepherds that on the other side of the mountain lay the rich
                  valley of the Eurotas. Aristomenes urges his companions to make a raid
                  into Laconia, avenge the wrongs of their fathers, and raises a revolt
                  in Messenia. Roused by his words, they set out: – e4
