Perseus thought that the fact that the Romans were harvesting the corn and dumping straw in front of their camp was a good opportunity to torch the camp. However, his night incursion was discovered. Perseus withdrew and there were some skirmishes with pursuing Romans. The Romans moved to Crannon (modern
, to the south-east of Larissa) to reap more corn. They saw Perseus’ cavalry and infantry of the hills overlooking the camp. As the Romans did not move he went back to Sycurium.

The battle did not make much of a difference to the course the first year of the war. The campaign came to a stalemate. Perseus offered peace, but Publius Licinius rejected it. The consul's focus seemed to be on harvesting the local corn to feed his troops. He moved from the north of Larissa to the its southeast (to Crannon, modern
) for this purpose. Then he moved northwards, toward Macedon and harvested corn again. Perseus carried out some attacks, but these did not amount to more than skirmishes. When he lost one of these skirmishes he left northern Thessaly and returned to Macedon. As winter was approaching he sent his troops to winter camps. After Perseus left, Publius Licinius tried to take a city by the Vale of Tempe, a gorge between Thessaly and Macedon which was the passage between the two states. However, he gave up because it was well fortified. He seized a few towns in the area and returned to his camp.
