Well decided to snap some more pictures today, all these are right here in Sparta, i decided to post Leonidas statue again but in a B&W frame, http://www.pbase.com/spartanwarrior/...0890/small.jpg
Then the next 1 isthe Sanctuary of Leonidas, this monument of Leonidas contains the bones of the hero of Thermopylai it's a little north of the modern town, http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x...onidastomb.jpg
Then 2 more of Ancient Sparta that is behind of his statue on a hill only had time for a couple pictures, http://i181.photobucket.com/albums/x...entsparta2.jpg

Knowing its original (containing the fences behind the statue)I do appreciate the effort you put in the first picture!

Such ancient ruins as in #4, among olive trees and the grass,have always appealed to me immeasurably!!

Ah, btw, how the atmosphere and the buildings around quite alike here : )

I'llpour the first sip ofmywine to the ground honouring Leonidassoon :cool:

hercules,


"Termopyle ... frihetspasset där Spartas hjältar valde döden till sista man" -

in a poem,

translated into english something like

"... the freedom pass where the heroes of Sparta chose death to the last man"

Thermopylai - the lock of Greece


Does this make sense?

Yes after you transcibed into English, "Stranger, go tell the Spartans that here, obeying their orders, we died."

Well i probably confused you sorry:) but that was a poem by Simonides, that was put on memorial stone at Thermopylae.

Thanks, now I remember,

"Leonidas, king of Sparta ...

..............

eternal his name"


performed by rapsodes?
