Classical Era Rhodes Island

The City of Rhodes was established in 408 BC after the union of the three cities if Ialissos, Lindos and Kameiros and its official name was “Damos of the Rhodians”. The establishment of the city was a result of the general political instability during the Peloponnesian War that the Rhodians were trying to overcome by establishing a stable and powerful city, taking at the same time a neutral stance in the conflict of the Athenians with the Spartans, despite being a member of the Athenian Alliance since 478 BC. In the years to come Rhodes was at times under the influence of the one Greek superpower or the other.
