Chronicles of Darkness: 431 BCE
- 431–404 BCE: The Peloponnesian War pits the Spartan led Peloponnesian League against a Delian League that has evolved into an Athens-dominated Empire. Both sides descend to brutal, total war until, besieged, Athens surrenders. Athens never regains its former power, and even Sparta is too exhausted by the war to maintain the spoils of victory.
