Synopsis

 Twenty-five hundred years ago a small Mediterranean community defended itself from an invasion by the most powerful empire in the world and won a singular victory of arms for themselves and for a civic idea.  The community was Athens; the victory was at Marathon, and the civic idea was democracy. 

The struggle was not over.  War and civic struggles continued for the following generation of Athenians.  This is their story and the next chapter of democracy.
