Historical Background
After the Thirty were deposed, the new government, although more moderate, was not ready to compromise with the Athenian exiles, who now held the Athenian port of Piraeus. The new government sent emissaries to Sparta, and Sparta sent Pausanias at the head of an army to resolve the situation. When Pausanias ordered the exiles to disperse, they refused. The following day, an Athenian exile force of light troops attacked the Spartans. Pausanias responded and ordered his cavalry and light troops forward with his Spartan Hoplites in support. The Athenian lights held for a time, giving Thrasybulus the opportunity to bring forward his Hoplites. The Spartan Hoplites engaged them and the exiles were defeated. After winning the battle, Pausanias suggested the government in Athens and the exiles talk. In time, the new government arranged a settlement between the oligarchs and the exiles that reunified Athens.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

Played recently with stormwalker as part of Spartan Hegemony campaign (10 scenarios, so far 5 played).
Again, bold maneuver of attacking downhill payed off, although in the end I had to fend-off some Spartans who managed to climb the hills.
