The Golden Age 01: Lion

11.98

Witness the story of one of the great lives of ancient Greece. Cimon, son to Miltiades who commanded at Marathon, is a washed-out young drunk. He is as much a disappointment to himself as he is to his family. The Persians are back on Athenian shores, attempting yet another invasion. But the breaking of Athens may well be the making of Cimon. As he hand-picks a crew to burn out Persian strongholds on the islands of Eioin, defeats pirates on Skiros, and discovers the bones of the hero Theseus, Cimon begins to live up to his destiny. He will became the greatest strategos of Athens, the lion of a new generation.
