King Leonidas of Sparta died at the Battle of Thermopylae in August, 480 BC.  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.

The Temple of Hephaestus 449 BC, also as Theseion after an Athenian hero, is the best-preserved ancient Greek temple; it remains standing largely as built. This temple was the first in Athens to be made of marble and it overlooks the Agora of Athens.  Construction started 2 years before the Parthenon and was dedicated Hephaestus and Athena Ergane, a form of the city's patron goddess responsible for pottery and other crafts.  The project was sponsored by the Athenian politician Pericles.
