Pausanias

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Famous Greeks

Pausanias

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Thucydides sees Sparta's King Pausanias (510–476 B.C.) as equal to Themistocles in intrepidity. By leading his allied force to an epic victory over a vastly larger Persian army at Plataea (479 B.C.), Pausanias ends the threat of Persian invasion and proves himself one of history's great captains. How do the Greeks manage to achieve this unlikely triumph?
