Sample text

First, Herodotos may be right about camp at the the Herakleion, for when Miltiades after battle A and the death of Kallimakhos was informed of the withdrawal of Datis with a substantial part of his troops, he may have moved the camp from the Vrana area to the locality of V alaria. And charging out from the encampment he defeated the remaining enemies out in the open plain. Alternatively, Herodotos has misunderstood an oral source. The Marathonian Herakles bore the epithet Empylios, 'he who is at the gates', and the narrow strip of dry land between Agrieliki and the sea was apparently called Pylai.

Learning that Datis had departed with some of his best forces, Miltiades launched an assault upon those remaining, without waiting for the Spartans and apparently without any discussion having taken place in the camp. The Suda does not specify whether Miltiades took the enemy by surprise in a night attack, like in Clement of Alexandria (Strom. 162), or in daylight. 1 The Suda's l\1iltiades had to share with Kallimakhos the glory of persuading the people to encounter the Persians out at Marathon, and he only won his victory there after Daqs had departed with the cavalry.

In both the Attalid monument on the Akropolis and the Stoa Poikile, the Amazonomachy was the mythical antetype of Marathon, as the Gigantomachy was the parallel to the victory over the Celts. Was there a similar link betwen the Stoa's Ilioupersis and Battle of Oinoe, that joint undertaking of the Athenians and the Argives? Was the agreement between Agamemnon of Argos and the sons of Theseus a mythical antecedent of their joint action at Oinoe? If preserved, the Ilioupersis metopes of the Parthenon might have given a clue to the Ilioupersis painting in the Stoa, but only two of the 32 north metopes are reasonably well preserved.
