Polybius, Histories, book 4, The People of Lepreum Evict the Garrisons (search)
Aetolians and Eleans within it, having nothing ready for
sustaining a siege beyond their bare hands, alarmed at their
situation, held a parley with Philip to secure their lives;
and having obtained leave from him to march out with their
arms, they departed into Elis. Thus the king became master
of Samicum on the spot: and this was followed by deputations
from other towns to him, with entreaties for protection; in
virtue of which he took over Phrixa, Stylangium, Aepium, Bolax, Pyrgos, and Epitalium. and other towns.
Having settled these things, and reduced all Triphylia into
his power in six days, he returned to Lepreum; and having
addressed the necessary warnings to the Lepreates, and put a
garrison into the citadel, he departed with his army towards
Heraea, leaving Ladicus of Acarnania in command of Triphylia.
When he arrived at Heraea, he made a distribution of all the
booty; and taking up again his baggage from Heraea, arrived
about the middle of the winter at Megalopolis.
