51.The next winter, the men of Heracleia in Trachinia fought a battle against the Aenianians, Dolopians, Melians, and certain Thessalians.
For the neighbour cities were enemies to this city, as built to the prejudice only of them;and both opposed the same from the time it was first founded, annoying it what they could;and also in this battle overcame them and slew Xenares, a Lacedaemonian, their commander, with some others, Heracleots.Thus ended this winter, and the twelfth year of this war.
