Chess pieces Spartan Warriors (silver) 6cm
Spartan: The Spartan army stood at the center of the Spartan state, whose citizens trained in the disciplines and honor of a warrior society. Subject to military drill from early manhood, the Spartans became one of the most feared military forces in the Greek world. At the height of Sparta's power – between the 6th and 4th centuries BC – it was commonly accepted by other Greeks that "one Spartan was worth several men of any other state". Thucydides wrote that "it was the common perception at the time that Spartans would never lay down their weapons for any reason, be it hunger, or danger."
