Product Description

Invading Greece in the summer of 480 BC, Persian troops led by Xerxes I were opposed by the forces of an alliance of Greek city-states. Pushing south into Greece, the Persians were supported offshore by a large fleet.

In August, the Persian army encountered Greek troops at the pass of Thermopylae while their ships encountered the allied fleet in the Straits of Artemisium. Despite a heroic stand, the Greeks were defeated at the Battle of Thermopylae forcing the fleet to retreat south to aid in the evacuation of Athens. Assisting in this effort, the fleet then moved to ports on Salamis.

A key turning point of the Persian Wars, the triumph of Salamis was built upon the following year when the Greeks defeated Mardonius at the Battle of Plataea.
