Storyboard Text

  • Egypt and Ethiopia were struck hard by a plague that was soon to hit Athens and cause unimaginable death. 
  • The area surrounding Athens was hit by the plague causing great despair among the people of Greece. Those who contracted the plague had to first endure through headaches, redness and inflammation of their eyes and inner mouth, and would have foul smelling breath.
  • The city of Athens was then massacred by the plague and thousands were killed.
  • Those who had been dealing with the plague would have to live through sleeplessness, sneezing and dreadful coughing that was caused by the plague reaching the chest. The infection would then reach the stomach causing vomiting and convulsions.     
  • Not even the royalty in Athens were safe as not even staying inside and away from the general public could save someone from the plague. 
  • Those who remained with the plague for seven or more days could expect death at any time due to the immense heat that the plague brought. With the top of the social pyramid in chaos the city of Athens fell into full on crisis.  
  • The plague spread like wildfire because of the unsterile environment with dead bodies everywhere and infected everywhere. The Athenian Plague is estimated to have caused upwards of 75,000 lives during its reign of terror.
  • The Athenian Plague can cause many to be dead,  so be a good citizen and don't let it spread.
