The real purpose of the expedition was the conquest of Libyans, of which very few people recognized a dependent position. During the nine-month siege of Barki Persian troops penetrated as far west as Evsperid (now Benghazi). And although the Persians suffered heavy losses during the retreat, some locals obeyed; Greeks with the Libyans have entered a new satrapy, which was given the name Putayya (512 BC. e.). Apparently, the stele in the channel began to make on the way back. They were left room for only twenty-four satrapies, but it was one more (India) than in the list in his autobiography. "Those that are by the sea" and Gaidar (although the latter was the country from which Skilaks went on a long sea voyage to the scheduled release of the Egyptian channel) have been omitted, replaced by a new satrap Kushiya or Ethiopia and Putayya or Libya. Pars still considered one of the satrapies, and Saka considered a single, though division by marshes and plains recognized.
