Spartan and Leonidas


Sparta,
the city state occupying the central finger of Peloponnese, was the greatest military power of Greece and played a catalytic role in her history.
The later Sparta did not produce art or philosophy, neither left us any written work, but its people were admired for their valor and for keeping alive the Greek values.
