The Ionian Greeks prepare themselves for the inevitable Persian counter attack.
Eventually Histiaeus secures the aid of the island of Lesbos, which helps him escape to Byzantium
We have a ship waiting, this way!

We will fight the Persians at sea. The Milesians can defend the city
Thanks a lot guys...

Put me in charge of training the fleet and we 'll win!
Meanwhile, in the Persian camp.
That, is a lot of Greeks.
Any idea how to win?
I have an idea!
Go tell your people that they will be spared if they do not fight, but if they do, their city will be destroyed when we get to it!
The greek camp, 8 days after Dionysus took over.
We're on strike!
No more training!
Strike? But the Persians are right over there!
