Included is a commentary on the Thucydidean text, dealing with such problems as Thucydidean seasons, Demosthenes generalship, and the marching time of armies. This study is followed by a survey of sites in northeastern Akarnania, probably the best preserved walls of any province in Greece. The author argues that these were not open cities in the late fifth and early fourth centuries, offering comments on the use of siegecraft and scalingladders in Greek warfare. The position of gates in several enceintes prove that the road structure in the mountains of Akarnania was quite different from that of modern roads.

The volume concludes with a study of sites east of Thermopylai and in the Parnon range.
