the meed is thy due!Athens is saved, thank Pan, go shout!" Und so treffen sich jedes Jahr am letzten Freitag im September die trainiertesten Langstreckenläufer der Welt und laufen den "Spartathlon" im Gedenken an den historischen Lauf des Pheidippides. Es kann also davon ausgegangen werden, dass der Tageläufer sich auf den Rückweg nach Athen machte. When Isagoras attempted to create a narrow oligarchic government, the Athenian people, in a spontaneous and unprecedented move, expelled Cleomenes and Isagoras. Like wine through clay,Joy in his blood bursting his heart, - the bliss! The result was not actually a democracy or a real civic state, but he enabled the development of a fully democratic government, which would emerge in the next generation as the demos realized its power. Dénommé Philippidès par certains historiens, Pheidippidès par d’autres ou encore Euclès par quelques hellénistes distingués, ce soldat de fait inconnu, enjambant les cadavres ennemis sur le sol fumant, s’élança en courant vers la capitale. Herodotus mentions for several events a date in the lunisolar calendar, of which each Greek city-state used a variant. The Athenians believed Pheidippides's story, and when their affairs were once more in a prosperous state, they built a shrine to Pan under the Acropolis, and from the time his message was received they held an annual ceremony, with a torch-race and sacrifices, to court his protection.On the occasion of which I speak - when Pheidippides, that is, was sent on his mission by the Athenian commanders and said that he saw Pan - he reached Sparta the day after he left Athens and delivered his message to the Spartan government. "Men of Sparta" (the message ran), "the Athenians ask you to help them, and not to stand by while the most ancient city of Greece is crushed and subdued by a foreign invader; for even now Eretria has been enslaved, and Greece is the weaker by the loss of one fine city." Quelques 20 000 envahisseurs perses, soldats de Darius 1er, alignés derrière leurs boucliers, attendent le signal de la charge. , Another tale from the conflict is of the dog of Marathon.  Passing through the hail of arrows launched by the Persian army, protected for the most part by their armour, the Greek line finally made contact with the enemy army. Jahrhundert die ersten Langstreckenläufe in einer Art sportlichen Wettkampf ausgetragen. Pheidippides is said to have run from Marathon to Athens to deliver news of the victory of the battle of Marathon. Based on this account, British RAF Wing Commander John Foden and four other RAF officers travelled to Greece in 1982 on an official expedition to test whether it was possible to cover the nearly 250 kilometres (155 miles) in a day and a half (36 hours). Most accounts incorrectly attribute this story to Herodotus; actually, the story first appears in Plutarch's On the Glory of Athens in the 1st century AD, who quotes from Heracleides of Pontus's lost work, giving the runner's name as either Thersipus of Erchius or Eucles. , Herodotus records that 6,400 Persian bodies were counted on the battlefield, and it is unknown how many more perished in the swamps. Und da das Heer, die freien Bürger und die Staatsspitze bereits in Marathon warteten, lief Pheidippides gleich dorthin. However, both theories imply that there was some kind of Persian activity which occurred on or about the fifth day which ultimately triggered the battle. , Modern historians have proposed wide-ranging numbers for the infantry, from 20,000–100,000 with a consensus of perhaps 25,000; estimates for the cavalry are in the range of 1,000. Like wine through clay,Joy in his blood bursting his heart, - the bliss! The foreigners prevailed there and broke through in pursuit inland, but on each wing the Athenians and Plataeans prevailed.   It is therefore possible that this arrangement was made, perhaps at the last moment, so that the Athenian line was as long as the Persian line, and would not therefore be outflanked. However, Cornelius Nepos, Pausanias and Plutarch all give the figure of 9,000 Athenians and 1,000 Plataeans; while Justin suggests that there were 10,000 Athenians and 1,000 Plataeans.  Herodotus's approach was entirely novel, and at least in Western society, he does seem to have invented "history" as we know it. Das Internationale Olympische Komitee beschloss 1914 zunächst eine Marathonlänge von genau 42 Kilometern.

Among the dead were the war archon Callimachus and the general Stesilaos.. In England und den Vereinigten Staaten absolvierten die Pedestria… He then ran the 40 km (25 mi) to the battlefield near Marathon and back to Athens to announce the Greek victory over Persia in the Battle of Marathon (490 BC) with the word νικῶμεν (nikomen "We win! The number was so great, it was decided to offer 500 goats yearly until the number was filled. Von Herodot über Bréal bis zur Gegenwart". Von Marathon nach Athen.  This theory therefore utilises Herodotus' suggestion that after Marathon, the Persian army began to re-embark, intending to sail around Cape Sounion to attack Athens directly. The Athenian and Plataean dead of Marathon were buried on the battlefield in two tumuli.  Miltiades ordered the two tribes forming the center of the Greek formation, the Leontis tribe led by Themistocles and the Antiochis tribe led by Aristides, to be arranged in the depth of four ranks while the rest of the tribes at their flanks were in ranks of eight. the meed is thy due!Athens is saved, thank Pan, go shout!" Autre avantage : ils sont acides et cet acide se transforme aussitôt en alcalinité, ce qui est salutaire, surtout si la soif survient après leffort physique : c’est moins d’épuisement que d’excès d’acide qu’est mort le coureur de Marathon.

Erst bei anderen, wesentlich später lebenden Historikern, taucht Pheidippides auf, schreibt Emiris.  The traditional story relates that Pheidippides (530–490 BC), an Athenian herald or hemerodrome (translated as "day-runner", "courier", "professional-running courier" or "day-long runner"), was sent to Sparta to request help when the Persians landed at Marathon, Greece.  Herodotus does not estimate the size of the Persian army, only saying that they were a "large infantry that was well packed". » murmura-t-il à leurs pieds, dans un souffle, avant d’expier, le visage radieux.  Thus, this re-embarcation would have occurred before the battle (and indeed have triggered the battle).. , The fleet included various contingents from different parts of the Achaemenid Empire, particularly Ionians and Aeolians, although they are not mentioned as participating directly to the battle and may have remained on the ships:. Since 1983, it has been an annual footrace from Athens to Sparta, known as the Spartathlon, celebrating Pheidippides's at least semi-historical run across 246 km (153 miles) of Greek countryside. Or, si l’on sait que ces deux villes ne sont séparées que de 40 km, on comprend mal comment il soit mort autrement que dopé à mort ». Schon ist ja Eretria geknechtet und Hellas um eine namhafte Stadt schwächer geworden.".
