After these events, the Achaeans, who were zealous advocates of the alliance, begged him to join them in an expedition against Acarnania ... .1 And when the Acarnanians attacked him in a mountain pass he seized the heights above their heads with his light infantry,2 fought an engagement and, after inflicting severe losses on them, set up a trophy; nor did he cease until he had induced the Acarnanians, Aetolians and Argives to enter into friendship with the Achaeans and alliance with himself.

1 Something seems to be lost here, probably a passage that ended with the words συστρατεύει αὐτοῖς εἰς Ἀκαρνανίαν.

2 The words τοῖς ψιλοῖς are probably a correction by X.; he says the heights were taken by the heavy infantry in Xen. Hell. 4.6.11.
