TT08 Halieis (459 BC)
In 459 BCE, Athens had started to contest the control of the Saronic coast with Corinth, traditionally an Athenian enemy, as a result of a treaty of alliance between Megara and Athens. Instead of sitting idly by, Athens moved to support Megara by seizing Halieis, a Saronic port within the territory of a Corinthian ally.
Although initially landing at Halieis without resistance, a polyglot force composed of Corinthians, Sicyonians, and Epidaurians soon opposed the invaders in a battle near their landing site. Although historians disagree as to the outcome of this particular engagement, the Athenians eventually withdrew to their ships, later winning a significant naval battle offshore.
