Quick Reference

City near the tip of the western (Pallene) peninsula of Chalcidice. It normally paid 6 talents tribute to Athens in the time of the Delian League. Its most famous hour was its enthusiastic but unwise reception of Brasidas in 423 bc; this led to harsh Athenian reprisals instigated by Cleon (the men were put to death, the site given to exiles from Plataea). Athenian treatment of Scione was a standard 4th‐cent. reproach. In truth, Sparta's betrayal of Scione was no less of a disgrace.
