The Plague of Athens was an epidemic which devastated the polis of Athens during the Peloponnesian War, starting in 430 BCE and lasting until 426 BCE.

Perikles, an Athenian statesman and general, leader of Athens, contracted the plague and was forced to remain in his residence for much of his time.[1] Meanwhile, Hippokrates deduced that the plague was being spread via the feces of the infected and sought to combat the plague by burning the bodies of those infected who had passed.[2]
