  Pleistoanax - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pleistoanax (reigned 459 BC – 409 BC) was an Agiad King of Sparta.
He was exiled in 446 BC, charged by the Spartans with taking a bribe to withdraw from the plain of Eleusis in Attica after leading the Peloponnesian forces there.
In 428 BC, he was recalled and restored in obedience to the Delphic oracle's advice.

He went up in the spring of 446 BC (eleven years after Ezra), with a strong escort supplied by the king, and with letters to all the pashas of the provinces through which he had to pass, as also to Asaph, keeper of the royal forests, directing him to assist Nehemiah.
On his arrival he set himself to survey the city, and to form a plan for its restoration; a plan which he carried out with great skill and energy, so that the whole was completed in about six months.
He set himself with vigour to rectify the flagrant abuses that had sprung up, and restored the orderly administration of public worship and the outward observance of the law of Moses.

 MSN Encarta - Search View - Persia
The Iranian plateau was settled about 1500 bc by Aryan tribes, the most important of which were the Medes, who occupied the northwestern portion, and the Persians, who emigrated from Parsua, a land west of Lake Urmia, into the southern region of the plateau, which they named Parsamash or Parsumash.
During the reign of Artaxerxes I, the second son of Xerxes, the Egyptians revolted, aided by the Greeks; although the revolt was finally suppressed in 446 bc, it signaled the first major assault against, and the beginning of the decline of, the Persian Empire.
His death in 323 bc was followed by a long struggle among his generals for the Persian throne.

 Sicilian Peoples: The Sicels - Best of Sicily Magazine - Sicels, Sikels, Sikelia, Sikelian, Ducetius.
The Sicels (or Sikels, from the Greek Sikeloi), though considered one of the three "indigenous" societies of Sicily (with the Sicanians and Elymians), were an Italic people who arrived several centuries before the Phoenicians and Greeks, probably between 1200 and 1000 BC (BCE), perhaps shortly after the arrival of the Elymians.
Their society was a loose federation which one of their last great leaders, the Hellenised Ducetius (Docetios), tried to restore and then liberate from Greek influence in a series of revolts in the 440s BC.
In 446 BC, following a series of military defeats, Ducetius founded the Siculo-Greek city of Cale Acte, on the northern coast in what is now the province of Messina.

Well-born and wealthy, Alcibiades was only a small boy when his father--who was in command of the Athenian army--was killed in 447 or 446 BC, at Coronea, Boeotia.
Alcibiades' guardian, the statesman Pericles, a distant relation, was too preoccupied with political leadership to provide the guidance and affection that the boy needed.
Alcibiades could not practice his master's virtues, and his example of undisciplined and restless ambition strengthened the charge brought against Socrates in 399 of corrupting the youth of Athens.
