The rise of Athens produced a natural rivalry in the Peloponnese with Sparta for supremacy in ancient Greece. In this war lasted from 431 to 404 BC participated almost all Greek city-states behind the Athenian and Spartan alliances and fought in Greece, Sicily and Asia Minor. It ended with the defeat and surrender of Athens, leaving Sparta as the dominant power in Greece. Two famous battles during the first phase of this war were fought in Macedonia, the siege of Potidaea and the battle of Amphipolis.
At Amphipolis, some 100 km from Thessaloniki, Sparta scored a decisive victory against Athens in 422 BC, where both Brasidas, leader of Sparta, and Cleon, leader of Athens were killed.
