Biography of Pericles:

495 B. C – Pericles was born this year, in the deme of Cholargos just north of Athens.

Pericles was the son of the politician Xanthippus, who, although ostracized in 485–4 BC, returned to Athens to command the Athenian contingent in the Greek victory at Mycale just five years later.  472 - In the spring of this year, Pericles presented the Persae of Aeschylus at the Greater Dionysia as a liturgy, demonstrating that Pericles was then one of the wealthier men of Athens.

 463 – Pericles was the leading prosecutor of Cimon, the leader of the conservative faction, who was accused of neglecting Athens' vital interests in Macedon. Although Cimon was acquitted, this confrontation proved that Pericles' major political opponent was vulnerable.
