Researchers discover location of lost ancient island off the coast of Turkey
We all know the story and studied it in ancient history classes. The legacy of the ancient sea battle, Spartans versus Athenians circa 406 BC. The Athenians were outnumbered (clearly the underdog) by the Spartans but using unorthodox tactics they strategized a victory that will do down in the record books. At least until they lost many of their men returning home and the commanders were tried and executed by their own people for the loss. Spartans ended up triumphing in the Polynesian War but the Athenians victory at the Battle of Arginusea is to never be forgotten.
