A few days later the ten commissioners arrived from Rome, and with their approval peace was granted to Philip on these terms:
that all the Greek cities which were in Europe or in Asia should enjoy their liberty and laws; that, whatever cities had been under the sway of Philip, from these Philip should withdraw his garrisons and should hand them over to the Romans, free of his troops, before the time of the Isthmian Games;
that he should withdraw also from the following cities in Asia: Euromum and Pedasa and Bargyliae and Iasus and Myrina and Abydus and Thasos and Perinthus (for it was determined that these too should be free); that, regarding the
liberation of the Ciani, Quinctius should write to Prusias, king of Bithynia, the decision of the senate and the ten commissioners;1
that Philip should turn over to the Romans the prisoners and deserters, all his warships except five, and one royal galley of almost unmanageable size, which was propelled by sixteen tiers of oars; that he should have a maximum of five thousand soldiers and no elephants at all;
that he should wage no war outside Macedonia without the permission of the senate;2
that he should pay to the Roman people an indemnity of one thousand talents, half at [p. 361]
and half in ten annual instalments.
Antias states that a tribute of four thousand pounds of silver annually for ten years was imposed upon the king; Claudius fixes the payments at four thousand two hundred pounds annually for thirty years and twenty thousand pounds immediately.4
The same writer mentions an explicit provision that he should not wage war with Eumenes, son of Attalus —he was the new king there.
Hostages were taken to insure performance, among them Demetrius, the son of Philip.
Valerius Antias adds that the island of Aegina and the elephants were presented as a gift to Attalus, who was absent, that the Rhodians were given Stratonicea and other cities in Caria which Philip had
held, and the Athenians the islands of Paros, Imbros, Delos, and Scyros.
