The siege of Amphipolis

I begin todays episode in the year 358, Phillip is looking to secure some sort of an economic stability for his kingdom so he set his sight on the nearby mines.

Then he decides to siege Aphipolis in the year 357, which went really well, for Phillip that is, not so much the Athenians that loved having  some sort of control of the city.

I say a few words about the Social War, a nice little whore story, staring our friend Demosthenes and Laida, and some other things that happened in the year 358 to 356.
