This contest at once made a great change in the situation to Alexander's advantage, so that he received the submission even of Sardis, the bulwark of the barbarian dominion on the sea-coast, and added the rest of the country to his conquests. Halicarnassus alone withstood him, and Miletus, which cities he took by storm 1 and subdued all the territories about them. Then he was in doubt as to his future course.

1 The siege and capture of these cities occupied Alexander till the late autumn of 334 B.C.
