I'm not familiar with it - just googled in fact - but sounds fascinating.
[gets on soapbox] So a Hellenic city much larger and more cosmopolitan than Athens, the birthplace of classical philosophy and science, rebels against the Persian empire, whose regional capital is a day's ride away. Without the protection afforded by the Aegean Sea. Without any delusions about the power of Persia and what it did to rebellious states. Then fights a desperate war with sieges, triumphs, epic naval battles, betrayals, and calamities.
And this rebellion is virtually unknown, even among amateur enthusiasts of the classical world. Why? When Herodotus himself was an Ionian Greek? I guess losers don't make for compelling subjects (the population of Miletus was enslaved after the rebellion). [gets off soapbox]
Yes, Athens is really tough - apart from a very few exceptions, like Aspasia, most women, at least in richer households, were pretty much confined to domestic life. Either you go with it, or you write about a different world.
Funny, but I've modelled one of my protagonists on Aspasia. She must have been an exceptional personality.
