‘Here is courage, mankind’s finest possession, here is the noblest prize that a young man can endeavor to win. Because we are Spartans!’
Leonidas, Spartan military king, whose stand against the invading Persian army at the pass of Thermopylae in central Greece is one of the most enduring historical moments of heroism. His name in Greek (ΛΕΩΝΙΔΑΣ) can be roughly translated as “Lion’s Son” or “Lion-like”.
