With few exceptions, the prevailing scholarly opinion holds that as of around 220 BC, Attalos of Pergamon and the Seleukid general Achaios had reached a peaceful understanding with each other, in spite of Polybios' direct statement that Achaios was at that time actively constraining Attalos in Pergamon. This paper argues that Polybios' statement needs to be taken seriously, and that the fact that Byzantion asked both men for military assistance at the same time is irrelevant to the question of the relationship between them.
