Thucydides claims to have narrated each event in chronological sequence only in the Peloponnesian War, and even there he sometimes departs from that principle for narrative convenience. In the account of the Pentecontaetia in I 89–118. 2 events have likewise been grouped for narrative convenience, but in 103. 4–111 alternation between Greece and Egypt suggests events occurring about the same time, and Egyptian documents and the narrative dates of Diodorus Siculus do not disprove that.
