We shall do it how Darius did it!
GREECE THAT WAY
A decade later after Darius had died, king Xerxes continued his predecessor, Darius's version.
In 480 BCE, Xerxes gathered a HUGE invasion to attack Greece again Darius's way. This time, it was on Thermopylae on the east coast.
In mid-August in 480 BCE, a small band of Greeks led by the Spartan king, Leonidas held the pass for three days but were killed to a man.
You haven't seen the last of Greece!!!
At the same time, the Greek fleet managed to hold off the Persians at the indecisive naval battle at Artemision.
On the third day, the Persians attacked, brushed aside the Greek flank guard, and annihilated the pars of the Greek army that did not withdraw in time.
Together, these battles bought Greece time and allowed for its cities to steel themselves for the bigger challenges yet to come.
