This chapter discusses the alliances that have come under varying degrees of Makedonian influence and were members of a so-called Hellenic Alliance which threatened the ability of the citizenry of Greater Aitolia to engage in their problematical patterns of private economic acquisition on a local basis and also to achieve the primary goal of their federation: security for member communities. The coalition Greater Aitolia organized in 220 withstood significant punishment and territorial losses, and the koinon itself survived the added pressure. The course of the Social War and the situation as it ends thus simply reinforce the conclusion that by 217, the heyday of Greater Aitolia had passed.
