Both sides prayed to their gods Zues and Ares before the battle the next day. Zues favored Athens to win while Ares wanted Sparta to win.
The war began the next day. The night before Zues and Ares got into a fight about who should win. So they both climbed down from Mt. Olympus and joined the ranks of Athens and Sparta.
Zues ended to be more powerful and concered Ares, because of this Athens won the war.
