King's Peace, of 386 bce, epoch-making arrangement, foreshadowed in negotiations in 392, and imposed by king *Artaxerxes (2) II of Persia, whereby the *Corinthian War was ended. The peace guaranteed the *autonomy of the Greeks, in exchange for recognition that the cities in Asia, also the ‘islands’ *Clazomenae (not actually an island) and *Cyprus, should belong to Persia (Xen. Hell. 5. 1. 31). Other detailed terms have been posited. The Spartan *Antalcidas was prominent in the negotiations, hence the alternative name Peace of Antalcidas.
