    Well AFAIK Areus was sent to secure the position of the KH on Krete (certain Kretan towns had been allies for a while with various members of the KH; and others were rather more inclined to support Antigonos), and Pyrrhos really appeared at the time to have been rather more interested in claiming the Makedonian throne.

    wasn't the KH formed by Chremonides?
    a few years later?

    I believe Pyrrhos kept insisting up to the last minute that he was not in the Peloponnese to do any harm to Sparta. He claimed even that he wanted his son to go through the Agoge training.

    Crete has always been a hotbed of pirate activity (even up to WWII) as it was then. Many pirates were in the employ of Antigonos and had been making life difficult for those opposing him. Areus was attempting to flush them out. I've also heard that he was trying to gather mercenaries.

    I´m curious about that too, I don´t think I´ve seen a single useful post from Tom0. Not that this post is very useful either.

    I don't come here a lot any more. You know why? Because you suck. That's right, I'm talking to you. Your annoying attitude, bad grammar, illogical arguments, false beliefs and pathetic attempts at humour have driven me and many other nice people from this forum. You should feel ashamed. Report here at once to recieve your punishment. Scumbag.
