Erinna rose to be one of the hetaerae closest to Anthousa, and meanwhile befriended another Korinthian hetaera, Kleio. They tended to pray together in the mornings, even after The Monger's threat to take over all of Korinth became more than just words.
Withdrawing to Akrokorinth, Anthousa sensed that Erinna was troubled, and when their paths crossed those of the Spartan misthios Kassandra, Anthousa suggested the mercenary help Erinna among others.
After Kleio failed to show up for morning prayer, Erinna went out to look for her in Bellerophron's Garden. There she met one of their clients, who told her that he'd seen Kleio earlier, with pirates kidnapping her and taking her aboard their ship. Following this, Erinna met Kassandra, and welcomed her help. They made their way to the Port of Lechaion just in time to see a pirate trireme leaving the harbor, and Erinna remained on the piers while Kassandra chased after the ship aboard her own, the Adrestia. Once Kassandra found out what had happened to Kleio, she returned and reported to Erinna.
