Alas, poor Uncle Pericles is no more. All of Athens has turned out to mourn him ... even little me.

They blame poor Uncle Pericles for the plague. He kept everyone herded inside the walls while the Spartans camped outside. Athenians, penned up like cattle they said.

He didn't die a quick death like most people... just hung on for weeks ... told the Athenians not to mourn for him. Just look at them!

Oh by the way ... my name is Alcibiades. You're going to hear a lot about me as the story of this sad war continues. I'm a nice chap...  really!!

How sad we all are
