- "No other beaches rival those of Marathon."
Marathon Beach is a beach which constitutes the northeast region of Attika, Greece. The area was known for the Battle of Marathon fought during the First Persian invasion between Athens and the Achaemenid Empire in 490 BCE.
5th century BCE
In 490 BCE, the beach became the site of the Battle of Marathon fought between Athens and the Achaemenid Empire, with Athens victorious. In the aftermath of the battle, many memorials and burial mounds dedicated to the battle were erected, including the Athenian Tumulus at its heart and the victory column nearby. In addition to these, near the beach was also the Statue of Artemis Tauropolos.
