Meanwhile the Athenians in the hundred
vessels were still cruising round Peloponnese.After taking Sollium, a town belonging to Corinth, and presenting the city
and territory to the Acarnanians of Palaira, they stormed Astacus, expelled
its tyrant Evarchus, and gained the place for their confederacy.
Next they sailed to the island of Cephallenia and brought it over without
using force.Cephallenia lies off Acarnania and Leucas, and consists of four states, the
Paleans, Cranians, Samaeans, and Pronaeans.Not long afterwards the fleet returned to Athens.
