33. About the same time King Philip, as the consul was leaving for Naupactus, asked him whether he wished meanwhile to recover the cities that had abandoned the Roman alliance, and with [2??] his consent moved his troops towards Demetrias, well knowing what confusion reigned there. [3] For, abandoned by all hope, when they saw themselves deserted by Antiochus, with no prospect of help from the Aetolians, by day and night they looked for the arrival either of Philip, an enemy, or of the Romans, even more hostile in proportion to their [p. 253]juster cause for anger. [4] There was in the city an1 undisciplined mob of the king's soldiers, a few of whom had at first been left on guard, but afterwards more came, most of them unarmed, brought there in their flight after the defeat, nor did they have enough of either strength or courage to resist a siege; [5] and so when agents were sent ahead by Philip, who showed them that the hope of pardon was attainable, they replied that the gates were open to the king. [6] At his first entrance some of the leading men left the city; Eurylochus2 committed suicide. The soldiers of Antiochus —for such was the agreement —were conducted by a Macedonian escort, that no one might injure them, through Macedonia and Thrace to Lysimachia. [7] There were also a few ships at Demetrias under the command of Isidorus;3 they too with the prefect were sent home. After that he recovered Dolopia and Aperantia and certain cities of Perrhaebia.
