"Here is your fate, inhabitants of spacious Sparta:
Either your great and glorious city will be destroyed
By men decended from Perseus, or that will not be,
But the borders of Lacedaemon will mourn the death
Of a king decended from Heracles. For neither the might
Of bulls nor yet that of lions will check the foe head on,
Since he has the might of Zeus. Nor, I declare, will he
Be checked until one of the two has been thoroughly rent asunder."
Herodotus - The Histories, the Battle of Thermopylae
