Very aware of the future threat from the Persian Empire, Miltiades tries to convince the other mercenary captains that they have the opportunity to eliminate Darius, and this threat.They refuse to act.This sets in motion a series of events that eventually lead to the first Persian invasion and the epic battle of Marathon.
