107. The Athenians at Sestos promptly repaired their ships, and on the fourth day were proceeding1 against Cyzicus, which had revolted, when, seeing the eight Peloponnesian ships2 from Byzantium anchored at Harpagium and Priapus, they bore down upon them, and defeating the land-forces which were acting with them, took the ships. They then went and recovered Cyzicus, which was unwalled, and exacted a contribution from the inhabitants. [2] Meanwhile the Peloponnesians sailed from Abydos to Elaeus, and recovered as many of their own captured vessels as were still seaworthy; the rest had been burnt by the Elaeusians. They then sent Hippocrates and Epicles to Euboea to bring up the ships which were there.

1 Eight more Peloponnesian ships captured by the Athenians. They recover Cyzicus which has revolted.
