When Pyrrhus, the son of Pantaleon, succeeded his brother Damophon as king, the people of Pisa
of their own accord made war against Elis
, and were joined in their revolt from the Eleans by the people of Macistus and Scillus, which are in Triphylia, and by the people of Dyspontium, another vassal community. The list were closely related to the people of Pisa
, and it was a tradition of theirs that their founder had been Dysponteus the son of Oenomaus. It was the fate of Pisa
, and of all her allies, to be destroyed by the Eleans.
