And when they were gathered together, in the first place Praxitas decided to tear down a portion of the walls1 so as to make a passage through wide enough for an army, and secondly, putting himself at the head of his army, he advanced by the road to Megara and captured by storm, first Sidus and then Crommyon. And after stationing garrisons in these strongholds he marched back again; then he fortified Epieiceia, in order that it might serve as an outpost to protect the territory of his allies,2 and then disbanded his army and himself withdrew by the road to Lacedaemon.

1 I.e., the walls which connected Corinth with Lechaeum. cp. 7.
