    After the conclusion of the Peloponesian War, Sparta made an attempt at a sort of "Athenian Empire" by forcing all satellite states to acknowledge its suzerainty over the region. It primarily had to rely on Persian money to supply a navy and mercenaries commanded by Spartan generals to defeat Athens, but with that victory, Persia cut off funds in an effort to weaken Sparta and thus keep Greece fragmented. Could Sparta, with the way its society was structured, have found a way to maintain its leadership of Greece or was Agesilaus just reaching too far. Also, did Thebes, with its defeat of Sparta, seal the fate of Greece in regards to Macedon which marched in unfettered, against the Greek allies, unaided by a decimated Sparta.
