Greater Achaia's new additions diluted its anti-Makedonian zeal, the keystone of the alliance that allowed Doson to deliver a stunning blow to an overextended Greater Aitolia, stripping the League of its crucial new additions as quickly as they had been gotten and crushing the confident pretensions Aitolians had gained in the struggle with Demetrios. When Greater Aitolia's citizens had the chance to rekindle the sputtering Achaian alliance, they chose instead to snuff out its last flickers. The limitations in the Aitolian's collective vision implicit in their actions were subsequently to prove as damaging to their fortunes as their earlier openness had been profitable.
