Aware that Achaeus fervently desired the release of his father Andromachus, held prisoner at Alexandria, they sent an embassy to Alexandria to pressure Ptolemy to free Andromachus—a request they had made before but now pressed with increased vigor. Sympathetic with the Rhodians and desirous of doing them a favor, Ptolemy decided to give up Andromachus, although he had wanted to use him as a hostage in settling his own dispute with Antiochus. The Rhodians returned Andromachus to Achaeus and also conferred certain honors on him, thus precluding his entering the conflict with Byzantium.

The historian Polybius explained the circumstances leading to war in great detail. ” Thus sited, Byzantium had “complete control over the supply of all those many products furnished by the Pontus [Turkey on the Black Sea coast] which men in general require in their daily life,” including cattle, slaves, honey, wax, grains, and preserved fish. In return, Byzantium purchased olive oil, wines, and some grains from other nations of the Mediterranean and Aegean seas. This trade, while advantageous to Byzantium, was vital to the Greeks.

Rome had returned unransomed prisoners to Carthage and forbade Italians to aid the mercenaries. But Rome also perversely took advantage of Carthage’s weakened position to seize Sardinia and to extort an added indemnity of 1200 talents from its enemy.
