Themistokles (ca. 523-459) Initiated the policy of building a large Athenian fleet. Led the Athenian navy at Artemisium and Salamis. One of the first Athenian statesmen to realize that Athens and Sparta were long-term rivals. He was ostracized sometime in the 470s. Later, Themistokles was forced to flee his exile in Argos and went to Persia; died as a Persian satrap.
