In the ensuing winter the Acarnanian Evarchus
wishing to return to Astacus, persuaded the Corinthians to sail over with
forty ships and fifteen hundred heavy infantry and restore him; himself also hiring some mercenaries.In command of the force were Euphamidas, son of Aristonymus, Timoxenus, son
of Timocrates, and Eumachus, son of Chrysis,
who sailed over and restored him, and after failing in an attempt on some
places on the Acarnanian coast which they were desirous of gaining, began
their voyage home.
Coasting along shore they touched at Cephallenia and made a descent on the
Cranian territory, and losing some men by the treachery of the Cranians, who
fell suddenly upon them, put to sea somewhat hurriedly and returned home.
