90: The Conflagration
As his generals struggled against Egypt, Artaxerxes dealt with their failures harshly - so harshly that his newest commander in the west rejected the Empire altogether.

88: Peace At Last
In 386 BCE, The Greco-Persian Wars finally came to an end when Artaxerxes II settled the Corinthian War by forcing the Greeks to accept The Kings Peace. For Persia, that was just the tip of the iceberg. With Greece settled, the western Satraps turned their attention to Cyprus, bringing King Evagoras of Salamis to heal in preperation for the long awaited invasion of Egypt.Patreon | Support Page | STORE Twitter | Facebook | InstagramSupport this podcast at — https://redcircle.com/history-of-persia/exclusive-contentAdvertising Inquiries: https://redcircle.com/brandsPrivacy & Opt-Out: https://redcircle.com/privacy
