William A. Lamon, a native of Atlanta, Georgia, and passionate student of classical history whose academic and professional careers have led him to many places throughout the United States, Europe, and the Middle East, has completed his new audiobook “The Last Shades of Scarlet: Wolves of Laconia”: a mesmerizing and fascinating historical story that connects readers today with a glance into ancient times.
William states, “With Athenian power and wealth growing, many turned to Sparta for assistance as they were seen as the only city-state in Greece capable of balancing Athenian power. The collection of city-states allied to Athens was known as the Delian League, and this consisted of many coastal and island city-states on the Aegean and Adriatic. Those allied with Sparta were known as the Peloponnesian League, the most significant members being Corinth, Boeotia, Elis, Melos, Pylos, Mantinea, and Epidaurus.”
