    Book details


The Peloponnesian War, according to Thucydides, was the resultof the growth of Athenian power. Beginning with the battle ofAbydos in 411, this edition covers the Ionian or Dekeleian War,whose end in 404 also brings to a close the Peloponnesian War asa whole. The narrative is all the more valuable for the fact thatXenophon is likely to have been present at a number of the eventsdescribed. In his very first sentence he mentions a naval battlein which the Athenians are defeated, and in doing so heraldstheir eventual defeat in the war. It is a tale of decline, and ofexpansionism gone awry.

Peter Krentz is Professor of History, Davidson College, Davidson, NC and editor of Hellenika II.3.11IV.2.8 in this series.
