Marathon is a town in Greece, the site of the battle of Marathon in 490 BC, in which the heavily outnumbered Athenian army defeated the Persians. The tumulus or burial mound of the 192 Athenian dead, also called the "Soros", which was erected near the battlefield, remains a feature of the coastal plain.The Tymbos is now marked by a marble memorial stele and surrounded by a small park.The name "Marathon" comes from the herb fennel, called marathon or marathos in Ancient Greek,so Marathon literally means "a place full of fennels".It is believed that the town was originally named so because of an abundance of fennel plants in the area. After Miltiades (the general of the Greek forces) defeated Darius' Persian forces, the Persians decided to sail from Marathon to Athens in order to sack the unprotected city. Miltiades ordered all his hoplite forces to march "double time" back to Athens, so that by the time Darius' troops arrived they saw the same Greek force waiting for them.
