In accordance with Flamininus’ and Nabis’ speeches (Livy 34, 31-32 ) on
the brink of war in 195 B.C., Rome’s intervention at Argos was requested
by the Greeks themselves for internal purposes: first, the long clash between
the Achaean League and Sparta, secondly the different aims of the
Flamininus made war against Nabis only to give freedom to Argos and
to restore the city to the Achaean’s League, which Argos in 198 had departed
from. Nevertheless Flamininus, after the Roman’s victory at
Cinoscefale, didn’t want to resolve completely the Greek internal conflicts.
