The Thucydidean story on the dramatic siege of Plataea is a subtle reflection on both the precarious and uncertain boundaries between politics and morality, and the risks and the ambiguity of public discourse.

In this frame, the religious sanctions and the legal proceedings are in fact subjected to a corrosive reflection.
