Initially born out of Persian suppression of revolts by Greek city-states within its empire, it widened to the Persian Empire versus a coalition of southern Greek cities led by Sparta which resisted this intrusion. After defeat of a Persian invasion, Athens formed a coalition of front-line city-states (Delian League) which continued to resist Persian attempts at enforcing peace, until Persia gave up and left them to go back to their usual disruptive internal fighting.
