Xeres is most famous for having an massive attack on Greece from hellespont, witch is just a narrow passage by the seas.

Was he a good leader?

As a group we decided that although he may have done some good things and he also did many bad. An example of how he was bad is that he lead an invasion to Greece and it killed many men. Another thing he did was break a policy which Cyrus the great and Darius Followed.
