The envoys were received with courtesy by both the leagues, after which they returned by sea to Corcyra.

He was carrying a stick cut from a vine, and with this he drew a circle round Antiochus and told him he must remain inside this circle until he gave his decision…The king was astonished at this authoritative proceeding, but, after a few minutes hesitation, said he would do all that the Romans demanded.” Polybius, 29.27.1-6 An Enlarged Roman World:  An Enlarged Roman World
