1 Readers of Herodotus will remember Alexander, who after Salamis tried to tempt the Athenians to desert the Greek cause （Hdt. 8.140）, but made amends by revealing to them the decision of the Persians before Plataea （Hdt. 9.44）; and also the statue erected at Delphi from the plunder of Salamis （Hdt. 8.121）. But Amphipolis was not in existence at the time, nor were the Persians in their retreat attacked by Macedonians but by Thracians （Hdt. 9.89）. Perhaps the Macedonians had their own history of the Persian invasion.
