Marathon Tomb
Here is the plain of Marathon where the great Battle of Marathon took place in September 490 BC. It was fought between the Athenians and the Persians. Athens was supported by a small force from the city of Plateau. The battle was the end of the first attempt by Persia, under King Darius I, to conquer Greece. The Greek army decisively defeated the more numerous Persians, marking a turning point in the Greco-Persian Wars. At the battle of Marathon Athenians suffered great losses, 192 men died. The Athenian and Plataean dead of Marathon Battle were buried on the battlefield. Their bodies lie there, at the awe-inspiring Marathon Tomb or else known Tomb of the Athenians. On the Marathon plain, the tomb is 9 meters high and has been the place where the Athenians paid tribute to their dead every year.
Marathon Run
Here is also the location where the legend states that the Athenian messenger Pheidippides was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly, exclaiming “νενικήκαμεν” (“we have won!”), before collapsing and dying.
