Chares of Athens

Chares of Athens was a 4th century BC Athenian military commander, who for a number of years was one of Athens’s foremost commanders. He was a well connected politician enabling him to procure the commands he desired. Commands he used to enrich himself and his adherents. Chares is first mentioned in historical records in 367 BC, when he was sent to the aid of the city of Phlius; the city was hard pressed by the Argives, assisted by the Theban commander at Sicyon. His forces were successful in relieving the city. After his successful campaign, Chares was recalled to take the command against Oropus. In 361 BC, Chares was appointed to succeed the Athenian admiral Leosthenes, following Leosthenes‘s defeat by Alexander of Pherae. Sailing to Corcyra, he supported the city's oligarchic party. With Chares's support the oligarchs gained control they achieved it only by a lot of bloodshed breeding animosity amongst Corcyra's democratic parties, he failed to maintain good relations with the oligarchs themselves.

As a result, the island was lost to the Athenians. In 358 BC Chares was sent to Thrace as general with full power, he was able to force Charidemus to ratify the treaty. In the following year, with the start of the Social War, he was appointed one of Athens’s generals. In the second campaign of the War in 356 BC, following the death of Chabrias, he had joint command of the Athenian forces with Iphicrates and Timotheus. According to Diodorus, despite Chares's eagerness to do so, his colleagues refused to fight the enemy because of a bad storm, Chares reported their failings to Athens, they were recalled and subsequently brought to trial. In contrast to Diodorus, Cornelius Nepos considered that Chares did attack the enemy in spite of the weather, but was defeated. In order to protect himself, he accused his colleagues of not supporting him. In the subsequent prosecution he was aided by Aristophon. Being left in the sole command, needing funds, which he was unwilling to seek from Athens and his men entered the service of Artabazus, the rebellious satrap of Hellespontine Phrygia.

The Athenians at first approved of this action, but afterwards ordered him to drop his connection with Artabazus following complaints from the Persian king Artaxerxes III Ochus. In this regard, it is probable that the threat from Artaxerxes III to support the confederates against Athens hastened the termination of the Social War; the quick end to the war was supported by Eubulus and Isocrates, but opposed by Chares and his party. In 353 BC, Chares was sent against Sestus, along with Cardia, had been unwilling to submit to Athens notwithstanding the ceding of the Thracian Chersonese to Athens in 357 BC, he took the town, massacred the men, sold the women and children for slaves. In the Olynthian War, he was appointed general of the mercenaries sent from Athens to the aid of Olynthus, his command was passed to Charidemus, who in the ensuing year was replaced by Chares again. During his second campaign he achieved a small victory against king Philip's mercenaries, celebrated it by a feast given to the Athenians with a portion of the money, sacrilegiously taken from Delphi, some of which had found its way into his hands.

On his euthyne he was impeached by Cephisodotus, who complained, that "he was endeavouring to give his account after having got the people tight by the throat". In 346 BC he was in this time in Thrace; when the Macedonian king, was preparing to march against Cersobleptes, complaints arrived at Athens from the Chersonese that Chares had withdrawn and was nowhere to be found. Athens was obliged to send a squadron in search of him with the extraordinary message, that "the Athenians were surprised that, while Philip was marching against the Chersonese, they did not know where their general and his forces were." It is that he had been engaged in some private expedition seeking plunder. In the same year, before the departure of the second embassy from Athens to Macedonia to discuss peace, a dispatch arrived from Chares discussing the hopeless condition of the affairs of Cersobleptes. After this, there are no historical records about Chares for several years, during which he resided at Sigeion, according to Theopompus, was his favourite residence.

But in a speech by Demosthenes delivered in 341 BC, Chares is spoken of as possessing much influence at that time in the Athenian councils. Therefore, it is possible that Chares may have been one of those who authorized and defended the proceedings of Diopeithes against king Philip in Thrace. In 340 BC, he was appointed to the command of the force, sent to aid Byzantium against Philip. Chares was ineffective against the Macedonians—his only exploits it is said were against the allies of Athens, whom he appears to plundered unscrupulously, he was accordingly superseded by Phocion, successful. In 338 BC, Chares was sent to aid Amphissa against Philip, he was defeated by Philip together with Proxenus. Of this defeat, mentioned by Aeschines, Demosthenes in his reply says nothing, but speak
