The History of the Peloponnesian War
The Peloponnesians were now well engaged and with their outflanking wing
were upon the point of turning their enemy's right; when the Acarnanians
from the ambuscade set upon them from behind, and broke them at the first
attack, without their staying to resist; while the panic into which they
fell caused the flight of most of their army, terrified beyond measure at
seeing the division of Eurylochus and their best troops cut to pieces.
Most of the work was done by Demosthenes and his Messenians, who were
posted in this part of the field.
