For this episode it's going to be another two-for-one special as we will be covering two lives at once, and we will be picking up basically right where we left off.
To jog everyone's memories, when we last left Athens the city had just been dealt a devastating blow in it's war with Sparta. Athens's lead citizen Pericles had convinced the Athenians to avoid a decisive land battle with the Spartans which would play to the Spartan's strengths, and instead stay behind their city walls and use their large navy to their advantage.
However a plague spread within the heavily populated city and claimed the life of Pericles. The war was not over but the city would need to find new leaders.
In this episode, we will take on the lives of two Athenians who would step into the void left behind by Pericles: these would be Alcibiades and Nicias.Support the show
