One of the stories related concerning the 300 of Sparta that we seldom hear is that, the citizens of Sparta took those blood drenched hours sacrificed by the 300 and King Leonidas to evacuate Sparta. Once the Persians had defeated the 300 and made it to Sparta they found a city devoid of a populace to enslave or govern. Sparta had gone to sea. They wearied of being rulers of nothing and so eventually left Sparta. At which time the citizens of Sparta returned to their beloved city now minus their would be rulers. And thus the stone came to be inscribed “Remember the 300” WOW!
