I like that article. I think the main point I took away from it is that money eventually corrupts; I'm so thankful that the Athenians were able to mine all that silver at Laurion to fund a fleet to defend against the Persians and save Western Civilization. Greek history is my biggest love (topped only by one) and I'll definitely be covering the Persian Wars and their aftermath as soon as I can - I just want to do things chronologically first. But once the war was over the next year - well, what do you do with what's left? The Delian League that Athens formed was absolutely an empire - the word "League" doesn't disguise what it really was, neither did the Union in "Soviet Union" - and like most empires through history, it overstretched too far too soon and rightly gained too many enemies for it. And the invasion of Syracuse reflected it, and it was just so out of nowhere.
