Details Pericles (495 bC - 429 bC) was an Athenian statesman, so influential in Athenian history that the period of his power is called the Age of Pericles. Under Pericles' leadership Athens became a great center of literature and art. The supremacy of Athens aroused the jealousy of the other Greek city-states, especially of Sparta, long the bitter rival of Athens. The cities feared the imperialistic schemes of Pericles and sought to overthrow Athenian domination
