  • You'll never win!!
  • The much smaller ships of the Athenian navy repeatedly smashed into the Persian warships. During the battle of Salamis. Xerxes, sitting upon a golden throne placed on a cliff high above the shore overlooking the battle, saw his navy completely destroyed.
  • We'll see about that!!!
  • Xerxes retreated with his remaining army. The Athenians and their allies defeated Xerxes' army for the last time at the Battle of Plataea in 479 B.C.E.
  • They were right.
  • Xerxes returned to Persia, defeated, and the Persian Empire never again invaded Greece.
