Athenians versus Persians

Simonides, fragment 18 = Greek Anthology 7.257 (tr. W.R. Paton, commas added):
The sons of the Athenians, utterly destroying the army of the Persians,
repelled sore slavery from their country.

παῖδες Ἀθηναίων Περσῶν στρατὸν ἐξολέσαντες
   ἤρκεσαν ἀργαλέην πατρίδι δουλοσύνην.
