(From the publisher):
Conceived in brutal lust, Ariston was both blessed and cursed with a beauty that brought suffering death to everyone he loved. Proud women fought with harlots for his embraces. Men followed blindly where he led. But Ariston was himself slave to an imperious destiny, driven relentlessly toward a fate few men would dare face.
Set at the time of the Peloponesian War. Here are the battlefield and slave market, the temple and brothel, the discourse of Sokrates and the Dionysian revel of Alkibiades, the brutalizing code of Sparta and the brilliant sophistication of Athens.
