King Agesilaos II, on whom Cartledge has published a seminal monograph — Agesilaos and the Crisis of Sparta (Baltimore ) — is central to the narrative.

      Agesilaus II was a Eurypontid king of the Ancient Greek city-state of Sparta. This volume introduces the reader to every important aspect of the society of Sparta, the dominant power in southern Greece from the seventh century B.C. and the great rival of Athens in the fifth and fourth centuries. Michael Whitby presents essays on key aspects of Spartan history and society, by some of the leading classicists in the world, such as Paul Cartledge, Anton Powell, and Stephen 5/5(2).
