ABSTRACT
The article offers historical information about the Battle of Plataea that took place in 479 B.C. In August 479 BC, Mardonius put Athens, Greece and the surrounding countryside to the torch, then swung his army north toward the Persian-allied city of Thebes. The Persian Empire proved a clear threat to the autonomous Greek city-states. Athens and Sparta had emerged as the preeminent city-states and fed the coalition to resist Persia.
