The year is 430 BC. The Spartan army has just invaded Attica, which is the area around Athens. The Athenians know that the Spartan army is too strong for them and have locked themselves inside the city instead of fighting. They hope the Spartans will just give up and go away. But a terrible plague has broken out in Athens and many people are dying ... try as they might, the Spartans cannot get into Athens. The Athenians can get supplies of food into the city through the port of Piraeus as the Spartans do not have warships to stop them!!
