The superiority of Thebes in the Greek region leads to the Second Battle of Mantineia on July 3rd against an alliance of Athens , Sparta and several Arcadian cities. In the fighting, from which neither side emerges as a clear winner, Theben's outstanding general Epaminondas is killed.

Following the Battle of Mantineia, the general peace of the Greek cities was renewed. Messenia remains independent, the Arcadian League remains split into a north and a south half, and the status quo is maintained for the rest. Sparta does not join the peace. For the first time in several decades, Greece is going through a lengthy phase without war.
