After ravaging the plain the Peloponnesians advanced into the Paralian region as far as Laurium, where the Athenian silver mines are, and first laid waste the side looking towards Peloponnese, next that which faces Euboea and Andros.

But Pericles, who was still general, held the same opinion as in the former invasion, and would not let the Athenians march out against them.
