Reply To: Cleisthenes, Sparta & Isagorus Oh My…

FourShoes, thanks for your feedback, and I’m sorry to be so slow in answering your question.

I’m not clear on what you mean by Athens’s alliance with Darius. Are you referencing a specific statement in my lecture or in one of the sources like Herodotus?

Sparta’s concern over Athenian power is usually cited as a contributing factor to the beginning of the Peloponnesian War, but of course that’s a couple of generations after the Persian Wars.

Any clarification of your question would be helpful.
