It means "come and get them" or "come and take them". It's the famous words that the Spartans yelled out to the Persians, when the Persians demanded they drop their weapons and surrender.

That is where the phrase comes from.

"Mole Handles"


When I translated "Come and take them" from English to Greek, this is what the translation was:

Supposedly it is what the Spartans yelled back to the Persians when they told them to lay down their weapons. Translated it means "Come and take them" / "Come and get them". You can see if referenced in the translated quote in the movie "300"
