I thought it read "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" but I could be wrong.

I have seen it both ways and spent quite a bit of time researching it. According to the Greek section of the Ancient Language board I referred to your spelling is correct.

It should be omicron - omega

not

omega - omega

I got my spelling from a website about the 300 spartatans....I think it was the plaque that at the site that its also spelled like the way on my gun. Probably either way is good.

Molon Labe! (mo-lone lah-veh) (Greek: ΜOΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ or μολων λαβε) means "Come and take them!" It was the response King Leonidas I of Sparta (a Greek nation-state) gave to Xerxes I of Persia at the onset of the Battle of Thermopylae. Xerxes, with his 600,000 men, offered to spare the lives of Leonidas and his few hundred defenders if they would only lay down their weapons. Instead, the Spartans held Thermopylae for days and, while they died to the last man, they inflicted serious damage to the Persian troops, also delaying them and essentially preventing the conquest of the Greek Peninsula.

In modern usage it is often heard from pro-gun activists as a proclamation of belief in the 2nd Amendment and as a challenge to those supporting stricter gun control laws (referring to a government seizure of firearms).


Rent an old movie called 300 Spartans......great movie that tells the story.
