“Helot” is the life story of a member of the down-trodden slave population of Sparta in the years from c 530-480 BC. He becomes the personal slave to kings, first Cleomenes, who clashed with the cities of Athens and Argos, then Leonidas, commander of the 300 Spartans who died gloriously at Thermopylae. The helot is an eye-witness at the battles of Marathon, Thermopylae and finally Salamis, where he is used to carry messages to the Persian king and an exiled king of Sparta.The basis of the story is to be found in the “Histories of Herodotus”. It has been carefully researched and sticks closely to what is generally accepted as the course of events at that period.
