  • Actually the original marathon (the road race) was set at exactly 40km. The extra 2km was added during a London Olympics due to the desire for the king to see its start from his palace.

  • Good video, good animation and the history is featured well. My only suggestion is make the battle more detailed to highlight the scale and nuances of the conflict. It's obvious as a student of Greek Hannibal's inspiration for Cannae was Marathon.

  • You missed Athens asked the Persians for help against Sparta. And Earth and Water being given by Athens. A traditional token of submission to Persia. At least by Persian customs. And when Athens defeated Sparta by itself, and broke the treaty with Persia, along with helping in the Ionian Revolt, the Persian king wanted Athens to be destroyed.

  • Persian fleet: *Arrives at Athens after getting curb stomped by the Greeks* Those same Greecians that raced to defend Athens: "Hello again. Back for round 2"? The Persians: "We're just gonna go. Just came by to congratulate you for winning". The Greeks: "Okay sounds good. Just never comeback".

  • There is a mistake on the map presented on the 12' 15". All the individual Greek cities, were city-states. So was Sparta. Sparta was not in charge of the whole Peloponnese. There were also, independent city-states, like Korinthos ,Arkadia etc. The terminology city-state came from the fact that all these cities where Greek (based on the 4 original Greek tribes, Dories, Ahaioi, Iwnes, Aioleis, including Makedonia ( which was also parted by city states, like Pella, where Dories came down from), but all of them had their own government/political system. Until Alexander the Great, (starting from his fatherm Philip the 2nd) managed to unify all the Greek city states under one authority.

  • The legend of Cynaegirus(en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cynaegirus) has it, that when the Persians embarked their ships in order to sail towards Pireaus(Athens' port) he grabbed the ropes of a ship with his right hand to stop them(wives and children were unprotected there). Persians took his right arm off. Then, he grabbed it with his left hand and that was also cut off ,but he hangs on by his teeth before eventually being beheaded.
