Athens has been humbled on the battle field. Her army broken, her fleets destroyed. But Athens herself is untouched. Handro takes his chance. His orders are to humiliate but not sack the city the inhabitants think of as the cultural capital of the world. Itís a formidable city to attack even with its reduced garrison. Can he carry out his orders? Can he walk the fine line that divides destroying Athens morale from uniting the Greek city states? He has his doubts but he has his orders. The first thing is to get in. The last thing will be to get out. But by capturing and parading the Vestal Virgins will he go too far? Itís just turned 404BC.
