Heraclius

Emperor Heraclius of the Byzantine empire (575 - 641). For many historian across the world he was the first Crusader, recovering the True Cross from the Persians Sassanids and bring it back to Jerusalem. He was crowned at a most difficult period, since the empire was weak and all neighbouring nations were expanding their borders. With major economic help from the orthodox church he achieved to assembled his forces in Bithynia (Asia Minor), and, after he revived their broken morale with major personal exercise, to launched a new counter-offensive, which took on the character of a holy war against Persians.

Spartans

Another picture of my favorite theme, this time more historically accurate in shields. Not many people know that the famous "Lamda" on the Spartan shields they saw at the movie "300" was not exist at the battle of Thermopylae, but it appeared about 62 years later. Hope you like it people. Kind regards Kostas

Marathon Battle

Ten years before Thermopylae and King Leonidas & his 300's last stand, Xerxis's father, Darious the great invaded Greece...He confronted the Athenian & other Greek allies army under the command of the Athenian general Miltiades at the Marathon area, near the city of Athens. Even if the Greeks were outnumbered they achieved to win through a unique of it's time tactic that's still teaching at modern military academies. Spartans came to the battlefield late, when everything was finished...They admired so much Athenians's triumph, that they song their war song for them...At these days that was the greatest honour Spartans can do for another army...Even if they didn't like Athenians... After the battle the Athenian messenger Pheidippides run directly to Athens to inform about the victory. He runned this distance so fast that when he arrived he just said "we win" and died...For his honour the modern olympic "Marathon run" exists. P.S. General Miltiades's helmet from this battle still exists at a Greek museum...There's also a big tumb at Marathon with the bones of all fallen Greek warriors. ---------------------------- Hope you like it people, and once again excuse my short history lesson.

SPARTANS!!! Tonight, we dine in hell!!!

Bryce & Poser. No postwork at all. Background sky is a photo of mine, not a Bryce sky. ---------------------------------------------- Hi all, In about 2 months a new Hollywood film named "300" is about to be released...Some of you may have seen the trailers in the net...It's actually based in Frank Miller's comic novell "300" which is about the ancient battle of Thermopylae at 480 BC bettween Greeks and Persians...In command of Greeks was king Leonidas of Sparta and his personal guard of 300 warriors. According to the trailers i have seen the movie will be at list impressive...But both the movie and comic is not historically accurate...The true story Herodotus (the father of History) wrote some years after this battle is better by far and of course true. The actual word Leonidas said to the Greeks troops (300 Spartans & 700 Thespiis) the last day was "Eat well because this night we 're gonna dine in Hades"(the place where Greeks beleived the dead go), meaning that nobody will survive or retreat from the battlefield, according to the Spartan law & ethic. Here it has to be honoroubly mentioned that the 700 Thespiis stayed, fought & die not because of their law or any obligation but only for duty & honour. ------------------------------------------------ Sorry for this lesson people but i thought, just because of the movie release, i had to mention all this. Of course my Bryce picture can not compare with all this fantastic Hollywood CGI, but i really hope you all like it... Kind regards Kostas.
