In 480 B.C., 300 Spartans held off 300,000 invading Persians led by Xerxes. Thermopylae “hot gateway” is located 85 mi. [135 km.] NW of Athens.  In ancient times it guarded a narrow, sea level, pass between mountains on the southwest and the sea on the northeast.  Eventually surrounded by a mountain path that led behind the Greek lines; Leonidas’ forces fall.  A very strategic location with a number of battles fought, but this is the signature battle.

The Evzones, or Evzoni, was a name used for several historical figures of the Greek Army who used to fight on the mountains. Today, it refers to the members of the Presidential Guard, an elite ceremonial unit that guards the Greek Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Hellenic Parliament and the Presidential Mansion. The Evzones are also known, as Tsoliades. The unit is famous around the world for its unique traditional uniform.  Here the guards are performing the ceremonial guard change.

King Leonidas of Sparta died at the Battle of Thermopylae in August, 480 BCE.  The tomb of Leonidas lies today in the northern part of the modern town of Sparta.  Additionally, there is a modern monument at the site of the Battle of Thermopylae, called the "Leonidas Monument" in his honor.  A sign, under the statue, reads simply: MOLON LAVE ("Come and get them!") which the Spartans said when the Persians asked them to put down their weapons.
