How to use Miltiades in a sentence
At last Miltiades proposed a plan which might succeed, provided there was but one chief, and all obeyed him well.
Miltiades was not rich enough to raise this large sum of money, so he died in prison.
Some time after, when he saw that Miltiades was beginning to misuse his power, he openly showed his dislike.
The people then remembered Miltiades, and bitterly regretted his death, and their ingratitude, which had been its real cause.
