109.The same winter the Megareans, having recovered their long walls holden by the Athenians, razed them to the very ground.Brasidas, after the taking of Amphipolis, having with him the confederates, marched with his army into the territory called Acte.
This Acte is that prominent territory which is disjoined from the continent by a ditch made by the king;and Athos, a high mountain in the same, determineth at the Aegean sea.
Of the cities it hath, one is Sane, a colony of the Andrians, by the side of the said ditch on the part which looketh to the sea towards Euboea;
the rest are Thyssus, Cleone, Acrothoi, Olophyxus, and Dion, and are inhabited by promiscuous barbarians of two languages.Some few there are also of the Chalcidean nation;but the most are Pelasgic, of those Tyrrhene nations that once inhabited Athens and Lemnos, and of the Bisaltic and Chrestonic nations, and Edonians, and dwell in small cities.
The most of which yielded to Brasidas;but Sane and Dion held out, for which cause he stayed with his army and wasted their territories.
