In the 2nd century B.C. Thyrrheion was the chief city of the Acarnanian league in western Greece, but by the time of this treaty it seems to have become independent from the league; see K.Freitag in "Federalism in Greek Antiquity", pp.77-78 ( Google Books ).

Alliance with the Romans.   When the consuls were Gaius Coelius Caldus son of Gaius and Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus son of Gnaeus; and the praetor urbanus was Gaius Sentius son of Gaius, and the praetor peregrinus was Lucius Gellius son of Lucius; a tablet of alliance was set up in accordance with the decree of the senate; Dorotheos son of Iason and Daidalos son of Menandros had come as envoys from Thyrrheion.

[There shall be peace and friendship and alliance] between the people of Rome and the people of Thyrrheion . . .
