Few writers are better at conjuring up a vision of Ancient Greece’
* * * * * * * 210BCE.
The most powerful empires in the world brawl over the spoils of a declawed Greece.
Philopoemen has a vision to end the chaos and anarchy that consumes his homeland – to stop the endless wars and preserve the world he loves. He must resist the urge of the oligarchs to surrender to their oppressors and raise an army to defend his countrymen from the all-conquering powers of Sparta, Macedon and Rome.
It is the last roll of the dice for the Achean League. The moment Philopoemen has been training for his whole life.
The new Achilles is poised to restore the glory of the former empire. To herald a new era.
To become the last great hero of Greece.
