Athens showed her appreciation of Evagoras by setting up his statue. His achievements frightened the King of Persia much more than Cyrus had done. During the Cyprian war he spent 15,000 talents in ten years in trying to subdue him. Evagoras actually increased his territory and invaded Phoenicia, so that at last the Great King was only too glad to make peace, having never been able to capture Salamis with a vast armament, though Evagoras had seized it with only fifty men.
