What effect did the Peloponnesian war have on Athens and Spa
Transcript of What effect did the Peloponnesian war have on Athens and Spa
In this phase, Sparta, now receiving support from Persia, supported rebellions in Athens' subject states in the Aegean Sea and Ionia, undermining Athens' empire, and, eventually, depriving the city of naval supremacy. The destruction of Athens' fleet at Aegospotami effectively ended the war, and Athens surrendered in the following year.
The three stages of the Peloponnesian war.
The first stage was relatively ineffective. Sparta was terrible at sieges, and attacked Attica each year, burning their crops.
The second stage was a peace that did not last. It ended in 415. During this time Athens attempted movements against Sicily.
The third stage (Ionian or Decelian War) involved Sparta creating problems for Athens and their Delian League. Sparta was aided by Persia to start rebellious movements in Ionia. Athens was also suffering from their defeat in 413 in Sicily. However, they survived and were quite tenacious.
Who wrote about the Peloponnesian war?
Thucydides famously claimed that the Spartans went to war in 431 BC "because they were afraid of the further growth of Athenian power, seeing, as they did, that the greater part of Hellas was under the control of Athens" Indeed, the fifty years of Greek history that preceded the outbreak of the Peloponnesian War had been marked by the development of Athens as a major power in the Mediterranean world. The Athenians did several things in the 50 years prior to the start of the war that made the Spartans feel they could not be trusted and would eventually try to conquer Sparta.
