Chronicles of Darkness: 480 BCE
- 480-479: The battles of Salamis and Plataea defeat the Persian Empire’s invasion force into Greece. The Empire never again attempts to invade the Greek mainland, and maintains a strong separation between Greek and Asian civilizations. Greek sorcerers make violent contact with more organized, literate Persian counterparts. Buoyed by the victory it led, Athens creates the Delian League to defend against future invasions.
