The History of Ancient Greece

    104 The (Athenian) Empire Strikes Back


    In this episode, we discuss the years 411-410 BC of the Peloponnesian War, including the the shifting of the naval war to the Hellespont, the vigor that Athens showed in carrying on the war effort against Sparta and Pharnabazos with victories at Cynossema and Cyzicus, the re-establishment of the radical democracy, and the transition from the historical account of Thucydides into that of Xenophon’s Hellenica.
