The Greeks strong weapons and armor were an advantage for the battle. The Persians bow and arrow weapons did no favor in the battle. The Persians had 2,000- strong Persian cavalry. The total strength of the Persian were 90,000 men. The Greeks had only between 10,000 and 20,000 soldiers. There were 6,400 Persians dead and only 192 Greeks dead. In the end the Greeks took the win of the battle of Marathon, but Persia made sure this wasn't the end of it.
Battle of Plataea
We will defeat you!!!
The war was still going on, the Persians empire was still strong. They still controlled much of Greece and their army was still strong. After a long time of battles, it was obvious that the Persians would not win. The two opposing armies met at Plataea in Boeotia in August 479 BCE.
