Historical background


WESTERN ASIA MINOR - ANONYMOUS

(Ve - fourth century BC)

After the conquest of Lydia by Cyrus in 546 BC, the Achaemenid kings organized the satrapies of Asia Minor with West Sardis capital. When the Ionian revolt in 494 BC, Darius I (521-486 BC) crushed the ambitions of Asia Minor independence and tried to reduce Greece. Only the Athenian victory at Marathon in 490 BC prevented him. His son Xerxes (486-465 BC) tried to turn enslave Greece, he was finally defeated at Salamis and Plataea to the Greeks coalition. During the next fifty years, the Athenian thalassocracy dominated Asia Minor. The fall of Athens allowed the great king back on the political scene and recheck Asia Minor through peace Antalcidas (387 BC). Asia Minor in the fourth century BC was marked by the diminution of Achaemenid power and takeover by the satraps in Caria, Ionia, Lydia, Lycia and Cilicia who are lla real power in the Asia Minor under the Achaemenid nominal authority until the arrival of Alexander the Great in 334 BC.
