Battle of Coronea

Fought B.C. 447, when an Athenian army under Tolmides, which had entered Boeotia to reduce certain Boeotian towns which had thrown off their allegiance to Athens, was encountered and totally defeated by a largely superior force of Boeotians. Almost all the surviving Athenians were captured, and, to secure their release, Athens resigned her claims over Boeotia.
