POSIDONIUS'S THEORY OF HISTORICAL CAUSATION 1341 police the countryside. Anyone suspected of disloyalty or of attempting to escape was brought back and questioned under torture. So severe was the torture that many died. 214b - c, c-d). Moreover the terror and violence of Athenion's reign was not the only consequence of Athens' decision to revolt against Rome. Posidonius tells us that there were also severe shortages of food and grain had to be strictly rationed. 214C, f). Athenion's reign of terror stood in stark contrast to the utopia he had promised the Athenians.

The effect of these appeals was overwhelming. The 'mindless mob' made no attempt to verify Athenion's claims of influence with Mithridates or the likelihood that he could deliver on his promises. The Athenians placed a blind trust in Athenion, and upon the first Roman setback in Asia the Athenians jumped to the conclusion that Roman rule had already been overthrown and their hopes for financial gain were all but fulfilled. 212b). When Asia Minor had completely gone over to Mithridates, Athenion returned to Athens amidst what Posidonius characterizes as a vulgar and arrogant display of pomp and wealth (cf.

In contrast to these failures, Posidonius shows us Nicias of Engyium, a man of intelligence and POSIDONIUS'S THEORY OF HISTORICAL CAUSATION 1343 foresight, who escaped disaster and by a clever scheme not only saved his ungrateful city from destruction by Marcellus, but became a rich man in the process (F 257/93).
