Events

By place

Persian empire

* Having successfully captured several of the revolting Greek city-states, the Persians under Artaphernes lay siege to Miletus. The decisive Battle of Lade is fought at the island of Lade, near Miletus' port. Although out-numbered, the Greek fleet appears to be winning the battle until the ships from Samos and Lesbos retreat. The sudden defection turns the tide of battle, and the remaining Greek fleet is completely destroyed. Miletus surrenders shortly thereafter, and the Ionian Revolt comes to an end.
* The Persian leaders Artaphernes and Mardonius grant a degree of autonomy to the Ionian cities. They abstain from financial reprisals and merely exact former levels of tribute. The Persians abolish the Greek tyrannies in Ionia and permit democracies.
* The Persians burn down the Temple of Apollo at Didyma.

Greece

* The Phoenician allies of the Persians take savage reprisals against the Greeks, whom the Phoenicians regard as pirates.
* The Thracians and Scythians drive Miltiades the Younger from the Chersonesos. Miltiades loads five boats with his treasures and makes for Athens. One of the boats, captained by Miltiades' eldest son, Metiochos is captured. Metiochos is taken as a lifelong prisoner to Persia.
* The Spartan king, Cleomenes I inflicts a severe defeat on Argos at Sepeia near Tiryns.
* The former tyrant of Miletus, Histiaeus is captured by the Persians and executed at Sardis by Artaphernes.

Roman republic

* At the end of a military campaign, the Plebeian element in the Roman army retires to the Sacred Mountain outside Rome. The soldiers in the so-called "Succession of the Plebeians" threaten to found a new city. To end the succession, the plebeians gain acceptance from the patricians that they may choose two leaders to whom they give the title of Tribunes. The office of the tribunate is thereby established.
* The aediles, magistrates of ancient Rome who are in charge of the temple and cult of Ceres, are first established. They are two officials of the plebeians, created at the same time as the tribunes, whose sanctity they share.

Births

Deaths

* Histiaeus, tyrant of Miletus
