More reading of Twilight of the Hellenistic World

I read another 75 pages in Twilight of the Hellenistic World concerning Philip V of Macedonia's Social Wars in late 220 BCE.  Different Greek city states allied with or against Macedonia.  Both sides were worn out by several years of fighting.  I didn't realize Sparta, Thebes, and Corinth still had fight left in them after three centuries of constant warfare.  I'm curious to see where the author leads me to now that I've seen Ptolemy of Egyptians and the Selucids meddle in Greek affairs despite their Macedonian rivals...
