The History of Ancient Greece

    103 An Oligarchic Coup


    In this episode, we discuss the third and final treaty between the Spartans and Tissaphernes; the comedic plays “Lysistrata” and “Thesmophorizusai” by Aristophanes; how the Athenians succumbed to civil war for the first time in nearly a century and saw an overthrow of their democracy by what is known as the 400;   the vicissitudes of this new oligarchic government; and how factionalism between extremists and moderates led to its downfall
