52.The next day they came out with their galleys, seventy-six in number, and the Athenians set forth against them with eightysix;and being come together, they fought.
Eurymedon had charge of the right wing of the Athenians, and desiring to encompass the galleys of the enemies, drew forth his own galleys in length more towards the shore, and was cut off by the Syracusians, that had first overcome the middle battle of the Athenians, from the rest, in the bottom and inmost part of the haven, and both slain himself, and the galleys that were with him lost.And that done, the rest of the Athenian fleet was also chased and driven ashore.
