Haha awesome.Hey we did the exact same sections...that's weird.
anyway can you tell me what you put for Xerxes B? About the changing interpretations and images? And what did you pick for the Greek World?
erm for Xerxes B wrote mainly about how he was shown through inscriptions and reliefs with Ahuramazda floating above kinda wrote about religious policy and integrated with some aspects of Xerxes building program.
I managed to write more about Herodotus, Aeschylus (ancient) and elaborated about the modern historians such as O'Neill, Lawless and Cameron, Mayhofer and others and just talked about like biased and hellenocentric views and how these have tainted views of Xerxes career as king have changed over time..
For Greek world I chose the question with the Herodotus quotation of Persian defeat and how Greeks were advantageous and talked upon Themistocles and Xerxes as leaders through battles of Thermopylae/Artemisium, Salamis.
