5. principio aestatis eius qua haec sunt gesta1 P. Sulpicius proconsul et Attalus rex cum Aeginae, sicut ante dictum est, hibernassent, Lemnum inde classe iunctaRomanae quinque et viginti quinqueremes, regiae quinque et triginta2transmiserunt. [2] et Philippus ut, seu terra seu mari obviam eundum hosti foret, paratus ad omnes conatus esset, ipse Demetriadem ad mare descendit, Larisam diem ad conveniendum exercitui edixit. [3] undique ab sociis legationes Demetriadem ad famam regis convenerunt. [4] sustulerant enim animos Aetoli cum ab Romana societate tum post Attali adventum, finitimosque depopulabantur. [5] nec Acarnanes solum Boeotique et qui Euboeam incolunt in magno metu erant, sed Achaei quoque, quos super Aetolicum bellum Machanidas etiam Lacedaemonius tyrannus haud procul Argivorum fine positis castris terrebat. [6] hi omnes suis quisque urbibus quae pericula terra marique portenderentur3 memorantes auxilia regem orabant. [7] ne ex regno quidem ipsius tranquillae nuntiabantur res: et Scerdilaedum Pleuratumque motos esse, et Thracum maxime Maedos, si quod longinquum bellum regem occupasset, proxima Macedoniae [p. 18] incursuros. [8] boeoti quidem et interiores Graeciae4 populi Thermopylarum saltum,5 ubi angustae fauces coartant iter, fossa valloque intercludi ab Aetolis nuntiabant, ne transitum ad sociorum urbes tuendas Philippo darent.

[9] vel segnem ducem tot excitare tumultus circumfusi poterant. legationes dimittit pollicitus, prout tempus ac res sineret, omnibus laturum se auxilium. [10] In praesentia quae maxime urgebat res, Peparethum praesidium urbi mittit, unde allatum erat Attalum ab Lemno classe transmissa omnem circum urbem agrum depopulatum. [11] polyphantam cum modica manu in Boeotiam, Menippum item quendam ex regiis ducibus cum mille peltatis6pelta caetrae [12] haud dissimilis est-Chalcidem mittit; additi quingenti7 Agrianum, ut omnes insulae partes tueri posset. ipse Scotussam est profectus, eodemque ab Larisa Macedonum copias traduci iussit. [13] eo nuntiatum est concilium Aetolis Heracleam indictum regemque Attalum ad consultandum de summa belli venturum. [14] hunc conventum ut turbaret subito adventu,8 magnis itineribus Heracleam duxit. [15] et [p. 20] concilio quidem dimisso9 venit; segetibus tamen,10 quae iam11 prope maturitatem erant, maxime in sinu Aenianum evastatis Scotussam copias reducit. Ibi exercitu omni relicto, cum cohorte regia Demetriadem sese recipit.12 [16] inde ut ad omnes hostium motus posset occurrere, in Phocidem atque Euboeam et Peparethum mittit qui loca alta eligerent unde editi ignes apparerent; [17] ipse in Tisaeomons est in altitudinem ingentem cacuminis editispeculam posuit, ut ignibus procul sublatis signum, ubi quid molirentur hostes, momento temporis acciperet. [18] Romanus imperator et Attalus rex a Peparetho Nicaeam traiecerunt; inde classem in Euboeam ad urbem Oreum tramittunt, quae ab Demetriaco sinu Chalcidem et Euripum petenti ad laevam prima urbium Euboeae posita est. [19] ita inter Attalum ac Sulpicium convenit, ut Romani a mari, regii a terra oppugnarent.
