Spartan army's symbol

The Spartan army was the center of the ancient Greek city-state of Sparta, where citizens were trained in the disciplines and honor of a warrior society. Spartan citizens were subjected to military training from a young age and they became one of the most feared military forces in the Greek world.

Notable members of the army include Nikolaos, Stentor and Brasidas.

History

In 480 BCE, at the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas I of Sparta led an army of 300 Spartans to defend a narrow passage way Malis against the Achaemenid Empire.[1]

During the Peloponnesian War, the Spartans were deployed across Greece and served as one of the primary armies of the Peloponnesian League. In this capacity, they fought against the army deployed by Athens and the Delian League.[2]
