616 Munychia (404 BC)
Thrasybulus and the Athenian exiles marched from Phyle to the port city of Piraeus. The next day, oligarchic forces under the command of Critias, one of the Thirty Tyrants, marched out to meet them. Thrasybulus had taken a defensive position on Mount Munychia, but when Critias men advanced towards the hill, the Athenian exiles charged down the hill and broke the oligarchic line of the Thirty before the Spartans could come forward. After the defeat, a new government was elected and the Thirty Tyrants fled to Eleusis.
