    WHO? THE PERSIANS

  • The Ionian Revolt, which began in 499 B.C.E., led to the start of the Persian wars. Earlier, in 546 B.C.E., the Persians had conquered the wealthy Greek

    settlements in Ionia, a small coastal region bordering the Aegean Sea, in Asia Minor. The Persians took the Ionians’ farmland and harbors. They forced the Ionians to pay tributes, or the regular payments of goods. The Ionians also

    had to serve in the Persian army. The Ionians knew that they could not defeat the Persians by themselves, so

    they asked mainland Greece for help. Athens sent soldiers and a small fleet of ships. Unfortunately for the Ionians, the Athenians went home after an initial

    success, leaving the small Ionian army to continue fighting alone. In 493 B.C.E., the Persian army defeated the Ionians. To punish the Ionians

    for rebelling, the Persians destroyed the city of Miletus (my-LEE-tuhs).

    WHAT STARTED IT ALL? THE IONIAN REVOLT
