B.C. It seems to have been somewhere about this date that Aeneas the Stymphalian,[1] who had become general of the Arcadians, finding that the state of affairs in Sicyon was intolerable, marched up with his army into the acropolis.
B.C. The employment of the sacred treasures of the temple by the Arcadian magistrates[29] as a means of maintaining the Eparitoi[30] aroused protest.
B.C. The oaths were ratified; and amongst those who swore to them were included not only the parties immediately concerned, but the men of Tegea, and the Theban general himself, who was inside Tegea with three hundred heavy infantry of the Boeotians.

B.C. On their arrival in Asia, Thibron further collected contingents from the Hellenic cities on the continent; for at this time the word of a Lacedaemonian was law.
B.C. This being so, Dercylidas advanced into Bithynian Thrace, and there spent the winter; nor did Pharnabazus exhibit a shadow of annoyance, since the Bithynians were perpetually at war with himself.
B.C. Whilst such was the conduct of affairs in Asia under the guidance of Dercylidas, the Lacedaemonians at home were at the same time no less busily employed with other matters.

431-404 BC The Peloponnesian War was the major contest in the struggle for hegemony in Greece.
While there have been many larger and more decisive wars in history, this war continues to fascinate because of the striking contrasts between the two major participants, Athens and Sparta, and because Thucydides made this war the subject of one of the first great pieces of historical writing.

In the front view the drapery clings damply to the flesh and has the effect of nudity; over the figure's right thigh a series of curving ridges ("modelling lines") stress the roundness of the limb so that it looks still rounder than the naked left thigh.
The original, made about 440 BC, was of bronze and the most famous work of Polykleitos.
The composition is still four-square, designed principally for front and side views, but the proportions and the pose have been planned thoughtfully, so that none of the major axes of the figure are strictly vertical or horizontal.

The (MT) 430 and (LXX) 190 of Ezk.
Thus, the bible numbers given to us by Ezekiel are yet another indication that the total 405-year chronological gap between the NT and the MT is intentional because both the 430 and the 190 of Ezekiel form an integral part of the 405-year chronological gap.
This 405-yr gap, therefore, is one-tenth of the 40 day/years of Ezk.

 Second Key Concept
That is, similar major events, such as the Exodus of 1446 BC and the exile at the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC, connect with each other by intervals of 360, 430, or 490 years, all of which are foundational biblical numbers, (Ezekiel 4, Daniel 9).
Another 430 x 2 years later was the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC, when Israel went again back into Egypt (and Babylon).
The linking of Exodus events with those of the 586 BC Exile, along with its '430' days and years, is also a major theme in the book of Ezekiel.

 Zeno Of Elea --  Encyclopædia Britannica
430 BC), Greek philosopher and mathematician, whom Aristotle called the inventor of dialectic.
He is especially known for his paradoxes that contributed to the development of logical and mathematical rigour and that were insoluble until the development of precise concepts of continuity and infinity.
The story is pure legend, but it does reflect the fact that Parmenides was the first philosopher to use an extended argument for his views, rather than merely proposing a vision of reality.

 PHEIDIAS
It is said of Phidias that he alone had seen the exact image of the gods and that he revealed it to man. He established forever general conceptions of Zeus and Athena.
The ancient writers considered Phidias' Zeus, completed about 430, for the Temple of Zeus at Olympia to be his masterpiece; this colossal statue is now considered to be one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
In other words, Phidias may be called the initiator of the idealistic, classical style that distinguishes Greek art in the later 5th and the 4th centuries.

 The Pre-Socratics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The first of the ancient philosophers (at least the first recorded) was Thales (c.636-c.546 BC) who, with his younger contemporaries Anaximander (c.611-547 BC) and Anaximenes (c.585-528 BC), wondered what everything was made of.
A more familiar name, especially to students of mathematics, is that of Pythagoras (c.582-c.507 BC), who believed that the essence of things was "number and figure." He believed that mathematics purified the soul, and started a quaint little religious sect of mystical-mathematical holy-rollers.
Empedocles (c.495-c.435 BC) devised an interesting theory of elements--earth, air, fire, and water--as the basic changeless stuff of which changeable things were made.

He grew up under the leadership of Pericles (495-429 BC), saw the foundation of Athenian democracy and its corruption under the demagogues (429-422), its defeat by the Spartans (404 BC) and its collapse under the tyrants (404-403).
His defence of the law that the admirals each deserved a legal trial was interpreted by the mob as anti-democratic but he stood up for the law in even unpopular decisions.
It is is possible that the original Socrates shared many of the views expressed by his pupils, but several of his pupils reflect specific interests of their own although some of them presented their own philosophy as a direct development of his.

 Who are the Chaldeans?
By the fall of the Assyrian Empire (612 B.C.) and Babylonian (Chaldean) Empire (539 B.C.), Mesopotamia and the lower valley of the Tigris-Euphrates were still predominantly pagan.
The following century (2006- 1894 B.C.) was characterized by the immigration of a wave of Amorites from the West of Euphrates, that came and settled in the plains between the Two Rivers, when they established several small kingdoms in the cities of Eissen, Larsa and Ishnuna, until the establishment in Babel of a new dynasty.
In 627 B.C., Nabupalassar with the help of Chaldean tribes became king of Babylon, declared independence from Assyria, and allied himself with the Medees, causing the collapse of the Assyrian empire and the fall of Nineveh in 612 B.C., and then he expanded the rule of Babylon over all of Mesopotamia and beyond.

 Chalice-shaped krater
The introduction of a subdued polychromy on the white background of the vases in some way reflects in pottery decoration the parallel developments of the painting of the same time, both of walls and on easels.
From the chalice-shaped krater of the Painter of the Phiale of Boston, pupil of the Painter of Achilles, who worked between 450 and 425 BC circa, there clearly emerges a painting style that is by now not easy to express with the red-figures alone.
However the master is an expert in the latter technique, as can be seen from other vases.
