Historical background


(525-463 BC)

Thasos, located on the island of the same name, concealed important metal mines which aroused the covetousness of its neighbours. During the Persian Wars (490-480 AC.), it was occupied by the Persians which could explain the use of the Babylonian standard. In 463 BC, conquered by Cimon, it fell under the control of Athens and followed its destiny. The city only regained its independence in 411 BC..
