The ambassador of the Scythians said to Dareios: "We are free like the wind, and all, what you can catch in our land, is the wind.".
Dareios answered to the ambassador of the Scythians: "No untruths and not under cheap sails." ("Nil vanum nec vile velis.").
Plutarch wrote that Dourios, who claimed to be a descendant of Alcibiades, added to the history about Alcibiades, that Alcibiades had entered the harbour with a purple sail.
