Summer was now over.

The winter following a battle took place between the Heracleots in Trachinia and the Aenianians, Dolopians, Malians, and certain of the Thessalians,

all tribes bordering on and hostile to the town, which directly menaced their country.

Accordingly, after having opposed and harassed it from its very foundation by every means in their power, they now in this battle defeated the Heracleots, Xenares, son of Cnidis, their Lacedaemonian commander, being among the slain.

Thus the winter ended and the twelfth year of this war ended also.
