Chapter Summary

Chalcedon, Helenopolis and Nicaea are captured, which means that the Procopians are in command of the situation in the Propontis. Valens' efforts to repair the damage turn against him, and he has to beat a hasty and hazardous retreat to his basis at Ancyra. This chapter provides Procopius' change of fortune after his initial successes. In particular the fact that the experienced Arbitio chose Valens' side was a setback for Procopius among whose supporters there were no experienced and reliable generals.
