51. In the following winter there was a battle between the Heracleans of Trachis and the Oenianians,1 Dolopes, Malians, and certain Thessalians. [2] These were neighboring tribes hostile to the place, for it was in order to control them that it was originally fortified; they had been enemies to it from the first, and had done it all the damage in their power. In this battle they gained a victory over the Heracleans. Xenares, son of Cnidis, the Lacedaemonian governor, and many of the Heracleans were killed. Thus ended the winter, and with it the twelfth year of the war.

1 The Heracleans defeated by the neighbouring tribes.
