Agis in "The Daimon"

In 413 BC, Sparta suffered from a massive raid by the Athenian general Alkibiades.[1] Agis II was shocked by the ability of Athens, for the first time, to attack Sparta with impunity much the way Sparta had been doing for decades. He sought peace with Alkibiades, who returned to Athens after the raid on Sparta and seized absolute power. The two agreed to stop fighting and to work together against a common foe.[2] By 412, Athens and Sparta were prepared to attack their mutual enemy, Persia.[3]
