33.The winter following, Euarchus of Acarnania, desirous to return to Astacus, prevaileth with the Corinthians to go thither with forty galleys and fifteen hundred men of arms to re-establish him, to which he hired also certain other mercenaries for the same purpose.The commanders of this army were Euphamidas the son of Aristonymus, Timoxenes the son of Timocrates, and Eumachus the son of Chrysis.
When they had re-established him, they endeavoured to draw to their party some other places on the seacoast of Acarnania;but missing their purpose, they set sail homeward.
As they passed by the coast of Cephalonia, they disbarked in the territory of the Cranii where, under colour of composition, they were deceived and lost some part of their forces.For the assault made upon them by the Cranii being unexpected, they got off with much ado and went home.
