Played that one solo today.
The Athenians had a Mounted Charge in their initial hand, so threw the Thessalian cavalry around the Spartan left.
Two turns later, the cavalry had vaporized without having had the opportunity to switch sides.
The Spartan had an early Line Command.
Then things went quite wide.
The battle was very attritional, and the Spartans seemed to be about to win the day.
But the Athenians managed to kill two shattered "bronze" hoplite units in one stroke, with the late arriving hoplites of Myronides (elimination, momentum, attack and elimination other hoplite), before the Spartan were able to score their 6th banner.

Here is the endgame situation :



The two Athenian generals are hugging together at the center of the battlefield, and Spartan Nicodemes has taken some steps back to contemplate the disaster... His left wing commander dominates his part of the battle, but unfortunately to no avail.

BTW, you can notice that the Spartan right/Athenian left remained rather stable (but even one more Spartan turn could have smashed the 1 block Athenian Hoplites with the attack of Auxiliae and/or LI).
The battle was won in the center.
The slight success on the Spartan left was not enough to save the situation.
