    No single event caused the revolution. [52] After escaping from the blockade at Abydos, Antalcidas attacked and defeated a small Athenian force, then united his fleet with a supporting fleet sent from Syracuse. This treaty declared that Persia would control all of Ionia, and proclaimed that all other Greek cities would be "autonomous" (αὐτονόμους), in effect prohibiting Greek cities from forming leagues, alliances or coalitions. In late 395 BC, Corinth and Argos entered the war as co-belligerents with Athens and Thebes. There, he was put on trial for his life for failing to arrive and support Lysander at the designated time. Then the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord. By 395 then, all Sparta’s enemies were ready and willing for war. Another lay in the depredations that the Thebans had been able to carry out in Attica as a result of the occupation of Decelea. Agesilaus's force from Asia, composed largely of emancipated helots and mercenary veterans of the Ten Thousand, was augmented by half a Spartan regiment from Orchomenus, and another half a regiment that had been transported across the Gulf of Corinth. In this climate, when Tiribazus called a peace conference in late 387 BC, the major parties of the war were ready to discuss terms. So the Lord delivered them into the hand of Midian for seven years, a. The allies then sent emissaries to a number of smaller states and received the support of many of them. The Athenians, mindful of their similar defeat in the Peloponnesian War less than two decades before, were ready to make peace.[53]. This war, called the Corinthian War (395–386) because much of it took place on Corinthian territory, was fought against Sparta by a coalition of Athens (with help from Persia), Boeotia, Corinth, and Argos. The major Hellenizing force, however, was his son Mausolus (Maussollos on the inscriptions), satrap from 377 to 353, who gave his name to the Mausoleum, the tomb he perhaps commissioned for himself. A little farther away, Sparta’s former Peloponnesian and extra-Peloponnesian allies were unhappy with what they saw as alarming extensions of Spartan territorial interests, though in fact some of these were very traditional. The war against terrorism is the first war of the 21 st Century -- and it requires a 21 st Century military strategy. At the least (and Xenophon, a great admirer of the Spartan king, attributes to him some very grand ideas indeed) Agesilaus seems to have wanted to establish a zone of rebel satraps in western Anatolia. New York: Harper & Brothers. In reality, the league also granted increased power and prestige to Athens. [27], From 393 BC, Pharnabazus II and Conon sailed with their fleet to the Aegean island of Melos and established a base there. Hecatomnus was appointed satrap of the new separate satrapy of Caria, perhaps in the mid-390s, as a counterpoise to Sparta. He, judging that he could accomplish more by campaigning where the Spartan fleet was not than by challenging it directly, sailed to the Hellespont.

These exiles went to the Spartans, based at this time at Sicyon, for support, while the Athenians and Boeotians came up to support the democrats. It was, instead, a series of events that led to the war.Essentially, it began as a disagreement over the way Great Britain governed the colonies and the way the colonies thought they should be treated. [27] This strategy to threaten Sparta had already been recommended, in vain, by the exiled Spartan Demaratus to Xerxes I in 480 BC. When Anaxibius and his men, who were strung out in the line of march, had entered the rough, mountainous terrain in which Iphicrates and his men were waiting, the Athenians emerged and ambushed them, killing Anaxibius and many others. [27] Cythera in effect became Achaemenid territory. Conversely, the favor was given to those who trusted in God and sought to fight for just reasons. Noticing that the Athenians had relaxed their guard after Chabrias's victory, he launched a raid on Piraeus, seizing numerous merchant ships. The immediate cause of the war was a local conflict in northwest Greece in which Thebes and Sparta intervened. 1. At sea, more progress was made against Sparta: Pharnabazus and the Athenian commander Conon won a decisive battle off Cnidus (southern Anatolia) in August 394. Initially, Lysander seems to have been at the back of this northward encroachment (good evidence connects him with Thrace and the Chalcidice). This solid base of support, however, was fragmented in the years following the war. (...) Pharnabazus, upon hearing this, eagerly dispatched him to Athens and gave him additional money for the rebuilding of the walls. There were some parts of the wall, however, which the Athenians themselves, as well as volunteers from Boeotia and from other states, aided in building. [37], After Iphicrates's victories near Corinth, no more major land campaigns were conducted in that region. Paul Greets the Corinthians (Acts 18:1–11; 1 Corinthians 1:1–3)1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and Timothy our brother, . Once there, he won over several major states to the Athenian side and placed a duty on ships sailing past Byzantium, restoring a source of revenue that the Athenians had relied on in the late Peloponnesian War. [39] The border stones between Argos and Corinth were torn down, and the citizen bodies of the two cities were merged. As often happened in hoplite battles, the right flank of each army was victorious, with the Spartans defeating the Athenians while the Thebans, Argives, and Corinthians defeated the various Peloponnesians opposite them; the Spartans then attacked and killed a number of Argives, Corinthians, and Thebans as these troops returned from pursuing the defeated Peloponnesians. Alarmed by these Athenian successes towards the end of the conflict, the Persians stopped backing the allies and began supporting Sparta. (1 Corinthians 10:9) "Flee from idolatry." [11] Timocrates visited Athens, Thebes, Corinth, and Argos, and succeeded in persuading powerful factions in each of those states to pursue an anti-Spartan policy. [24] The Persians, meanwhile, had already assembled a joint Phoenician, Cilician, and Cypriot fleet, under the joint command of Achaemenid satrap Pharnabazus II and the experienced Athenian admiral Conon who was in self-exile and in the service of the Achaemenids after his infamous defeat at the Battle of Aegospotami. [60], In the years following the signing of the peace, the two states responsible for its structure, Persia and Sparta, took full advantage of the gains they had made. God promises victory over all your enemies against whom you fight. That was the beginning of the second Spartan operation in Anatolia, related to the first because the Ten Thousand were eventually able to attach themselves to Thibron, having meanwhile been harried by Tissaphernes. Pharnabazus followed up his victory at Cnidus by capturing several Spartan-allied cities in Ionia, instigating pro-Athenian and pro-Democracy movements. [27], The fleet proceeded further west to take revenge on the Spartans by invading Lacedaemonian territory, where they laid waste to Pherae and raided along the Messenian coast. [7], Thebes, Corinth and Athens also refused to participate in a Spartan expedition to Ionia in 398 BC, with the Thebans going so far as to disrupt a sacrifice that the Spartan king Agesilaus attempted to perform in their territory before his departure. Thibron’s expedition was followed by that of Dercyllidas (399–397), but the most ambitious of all was led by the new Spartan king, Agesilaus, in 396. (b) What part would the remnant of spiritual Israel have in this? The deeper cause was hostility towards Sparta, provoked by that city's "expansionism in Asia Minor, central and northern Greece and even the west". Yet because that was always a direction in which Sparta expanded if given the chance, Sparta did not pull out of central Greece during Lysander’s temporary eclipse after 403. The causes of the Corinthian War lie in the policies pursued by Sparta after its victory in 404. Paul’s Message by the Spirit’s Power. These armies met each other at Coronea, in Theban territory; as at Nemea, both right wings were victorious, with the Thebans breaking through while the rest of the allies were defeated. [27] Their aim was probably to instigate a revolt of the Messanian helots against Sparta. [44], After their defeat at Cnidus, the Spartans began to rebuild a fleet, and, in fighting with Corinth, had regained control of the Gulf of Corinth by 392 BC. There is no agreement, however, that Sparta’s enhanced position was officially recognized by some such description as “champion” of the peace. The orders were a disappointment to Agesilaus, who had looked forward to further successful campaigning. This treaty placed Greece under Persian suzerainty[58][59] and marked the first attempt at a Common Peace in Greek history; under the treaty, all cities were to be autonomous, a clause that would be enforced by the Spartans as guardians of the peace. The fall of the Canaanite city of Makkedah. By this time, Agesilaus's army, after brushing off attacks from the Thessalians during its march through that country, had arrived in Boeotia, where it was met by an army gathered from the various states of the anti-Spartan alliance. [50], The Spartans then sent Teleutias to Aegina to command the fleet there. Pausanias, arriving a day later, took back the bodies of the Spartan dead under a truce, and returned to Sparta. shall be as nothing at all. Under Antalcidas' command, the Spartan fleet sailed east to Rhodes but it was eventually blockaded at Abydos by the regional Athenian commanders. The effects of the war, therefore, were to establish Persia's ability to interfere successfully in Greek politics, to atomize and isolate from one another Greek city states, and to affirm Sparta's hegemonic position in the Greek political system.[5].

The war was fought on two fronts, on land near Corinth (hence the name) and Thebes and at sea in the Aegean. [3] The Corinthian War followed the Peloponnesian War (431–404 BC), in which Sparta had achieved hegemony over Athens and its allies. This change is due to the Achaean League. 42 The strengthening exhortation from Isaiah’s prophecy carried with it the assurance: “Look! Hellenization was well under way before he came. These possessions had hitherto been anomalous enclaves of Greek control within basically satrapal Asia, but the King’s Peace surely assigned them formally to Persia in general. shall be as nothing and shall perish. In response, the Phocians invaded Locris, and ransacked Locrian territory. united several Greek city-states in a military alliance under Athens, ostensibly to guard against revenge attacks from the Persian Empire. A council was formed at Corinth to manage the affairs of this alliance. As Hitler’s appetite for power and territory grew, his army began to march across Europe. Argos, for its part, never needed much excuse to act against Sparta. The King's Peace, also known as the Peace of Antalcidas, was signed in 387 BC, ending the war. To whom was 1 Corinthians written and why? [32], In 392 BC, the Spartans dispatched an ambassador, Antalcidas, to the satrap Tiribazus, hoping to turn the Persians against the allies by informing them of Conon's use of the Persian fleet to begin rebuilding the Athenian empire. The satrap Tissaphernes was executed for his failure to contain Agesilaus, and his replacement, Tithraustes, bribed the Spartans to move north, into the satrapy of Pharnabazus, Hellespontine Phrygia. During the battle, Iphicrates took advantage of the Spartans' lack of peltasts to repeatedly harass the regiment with hit-and-run attacks, wearing the Spartans down until they broke and ran, at which point a number of them were slaughtered.

Disloyal allies were sharply punished—Mantinea, for instance, was broken up into five component villages. The democrats, supported by the Argives, launched an attack on their opponents, and the oligarchs were driven from the city. In 391 BC, Agesilaus campaigned in the area, successfully seizing several fortified points, along with a large number of prisoners and amounts of booty. [27] Abydus and Sestus were the only cities to refuse to expel the Lacedemonians despite threats from Pharnabazus to make war on them. With this force, which was soon further augmented with ships supplied by the satraps of the region, he sailed to the Hellespont, where he could cut off the trade routes that brought grain to Athens. The deeper cause was hostility towards Sparta, provoked by that city's "expansionism in Asia Minor, central … [27] Pharnabazus dispatched Conon with substantial funds and a large part of the fleet to Attica, where he joined in the rebuilding of the long walls from Athens to Piraeus, a project that had been initiated by Thrasybulus in 394 BC. On land, the Spartans achieved several early successes in major battles, but were unable to capitalize on their advantage, and the fighting soon became stalemated. Unable to defeat Agesilaus' army, Pharnabazus decided to force Agesilaus to withdraw by stirring up trouble on the Greek mainland. Other articles where Corinthian War is discussed: ancient Greek civilization: The Corinthian War: The restored Athenian democracy may have been less democratic in certain respects than that of the 5th century, but it was no less suspicious of, and hostile to, Sparta.

The formation of the Delian League, or Athenian League, in 478 B.C. From the point of view of Thebes and Corinth, there was a risk of encirclement by Sparta. And a remarkable trilingual inscription in Lycian, Greek, and Aramaic (a Semitic script used for convenience in many parts of the Persian empire), found in 1973, proves the family’s interests to have spread eastward into Lycia; the text illustrates the cultural, social, and religious heterogeneity of southwestern Anatolia in the period before Alexander’s arrival. [47], After this, the Spartans sent out a new commander, Anaxibius, to Abydos. Agesilaus met their force head on, and in the struggle that followed a number of Thebans were killed before the remainder were able to force their way through and rejoin their allies. of city-states.
