The battle was between a Persian expeditionary force and the city-state of Athens. The Medes (Persian allies) were part of the Persian force, so Median garb refers to the clothes worn by the Mede soldiers.

The name marathon comes from the Battle of Marathon. It was fought between Persia and Athens at Marathon, Greece. After the Greeks defeated the Persians, they sent a runner back to Athens to inform the Greeks of their victory. The distance between Marathon and Athens was around 25 to 26 kilometers. He burst into the assembly hall exclaiming Νενικήκαμεν (We have won!) then collapsed and died from exhaustion. This is just a legend.
