Themistocles

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Famous Greeks

Themistocles

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

The aftermath of Thermopylae was as critical for Athens—and for freedom in the ancient world—as May and June 1940 were for Britain and the cause of freedom in the modern world. In that dark hour, the British found a leader to rally them for the great test. In the same way, the Athenian democracy would find in Themistocles (527–460 B.C.) a man equal to the moment.
