Such were the events of the summer.The ensuing winter the Athenians sent twenty ships round Peloponnese, under
the command of Phormio, who stationed himself at Naupactus and kept watch
against any one sailing in or out of Corinth and the Crissaean gulf.Six others went to Caria and Lycia under Melesander, to collect tribute in
those parts, and also to prevent the Peloponnesian privateers from taking up
their station in those waters and molesting the passage of the merchantmen
from Phaselis and Phoenicia and the adjoining continent.
However, Melesander, going up the country into Lycia with a force of
Athenians from the ships and the allies, was defeated and killed in battle,
with the loss of a number of his troops.
