Best Answer

Athens lost, was stripped of its empire and became a second rate power. Sparta was the leading city for the next 30 years until displaced by Thebes. The Peloponnesian War and subsequent infighting so weakened the Greek city-states that Persia was able to reassert control over the cities in Asia Minor, and a rising Macedonia was able to assert control over them and use the combined strength to invade and take over the Persian Empire.
