Kimon the Athenian

Further to my post on this famous Athenian on 15.11.2011, Merja sent me another nice card from Larnaca in Cyprus, showing the bust of Kimon the Athenian. Kimon was an Athenian general and statesman, a member of the distinguished Philaid family and the son of the great Miltiades, the victorious general at Marathon. He helped defeat the Persians at the Battle of Salamis in 480 BC. He cleared the Persians from the eastern Mediterranean and died in Cyprus in 449 BC leading a naval expedition against Persia.
