Today we bring our time with the Athenian leader Themistocles to a close. The character qualities we’ve seen throughout his career continue to pop up even in the later stages of his life. And although the Greek world continued on in his absence, today we’ll try to follow him to his death in exile and see how his supporters and his detractors begin to use his legacy as a battleground for policies that will continue to influence Greece even after his death.
