His only serious rival is Arakos from Sparta. When Arakos is found beaten to death, it is obvious Timodemus must be the killer. The judges of the games sentence Timodemus to be executed in four days’ time. Complicating everything is the fact that Athens and Sparta are already at each other’s throats. If an Athenian is found to have cheated by murdering a Spartan, it will be everything the hawks in Sparta need to declare open war.
