107.The fourth day after this battle, the Athenians that were in Sestos, having hastily prepared their fleet, went to Cyzicus, which was revolted;and espying, as they passed by, the eight galleys come from Byzantium riding under Harpagium and Priapus, set upon them, and having also overcome those that came to their aid from the land, took them.Then coming to Cyzicus, being an open town, they brought it again into their own power and levied a sum of money amongst them.
The Peloponnesians in the meantime, going from Abydos to Elaeus, recovered as many of their galleys [formerly] taken as remained whole;the rest the Elaeusians [had] burnt.They also sent Hippocrates and Epicles into Euboea to fetch away the fleet that was there.
