Herodotus. The Histories. (Translation by Robin Waterfield.) Oxford Worlds Classics Herodotus is known as the Father of History, and was the first historian that we know of to collect his materials systematically, test their accuracy to a certain extent and arrange them in a well-constructed narrative. The Histories is the only known work of Herodotus. It is the main primary source for my topic.

Aeschylus. The Persians. (Translated by Robert Potter) 472 B.C. The Persians is an ancient Greek play written in 472 BC by the Greek tragedian Aeschylus. It was useful to see how the popular cultural of ancient Greece viewed the war.
