Anyone want to treat the question as a question instead of telling me how stoopid I am? CB

Its the Greek version of FMCDH. It translates to "Come and Get them", the Spartan response to being told to surrender their arms. More info is here: [url]www.thefiringline.com/HCI/molon_labe.htm[/url] Kharn

Battle of Thermopylae 480 BC On the arrival of Xerxes at Thermopylae, he found that the place was defended by a body of three hundred Spartans and about seven thousand hoplites from other states, commanded by the Spartan king Leonidas. Xerxes learning about the small number of Greek forces and that several Spartans outside the walls were exercising and combing their hairs, in his perplexity, immediately called Demaratos to explain him the meaning of all these. Demaratos told him that the Spartans will defend the place to the death and it was custom to wash and dress their hairs with special care when they intended to put their lives in great danger. Xerxes who did not believe Demaratos, delayed his attack for four days, thinking that the Greeks as soon as they would realize his great forces will disperse. He sent also heralds asking to deliver up their arms. The answer from Leonidas was "Come and Take Them" (Molon Labe) A Spartan, who was told about the great number of Persian soldiers, who with their arrows will conceal the sun, he answered: "So much the better, we will fight in the shade". like the tale? order the bumpersticker: [url]http://www.americansforguncontrol.com/bumper.html[/url] [img]http://liquid2k.com/zox/3.75x7.5trt.gif[/img]
