He then marched back to Scotussa, and leaving there the main army, retired to Demetrias with the royal guards.
Demetrias was founded by Demetrius Poliorcetes, who called it after his own name.
He changed the name as well as the situation of the city, and instead of Sikyon named it Demetrias.
In this manner Demetrias fell into the hands of the Aetolians.
His remains were given to Antigonus, honoured with a splendid funeral at Corinth, and thence conveyed to Demetrias.
Antiochus went from Demetrias to Chalcis, where he became captivated with a young woman, daughter of Cleoptolemus.
Thus they withdrew from Melibœa, and Euphranor, having raised the siege of one city, marched instantly to Demetrias.
Isidorus sailed over from Cenaeus to Demetrias, supposing that the king might perhaps have directed his flight thither.
On the news of the king's arrival, ambassadors from his allies came to Demetrias from all sides.
