meh you guys are all on the 300 trip... while spartans where not unfamiliar to philosophy, poetry, music and play most of the important ideas that shaped the western world came from athens... and unlike what the movie wants to tell us the spartans had just as questionable standards for homosexual pedophilia... but only for our standards... in sparta males where separated from their parents at age five or six and put under the supervision of a experienced warrior... thats where George Lucas got the idea for the whole jedi - padawan relationship... in sparta homosexuality was not uncommon in these relationships... some say even encouraged so warriors would fight harder to save their partners... as a initiation to manhood spartans where indeed sent out into the wilderness for a while... that the movie got right... what the movie doesn´t mention is that instead of a wolf they had to kill one of the slaves (spartans called then methoeken, which meant outsider) that lived outside sparta... the movie forgets the whole slavery part because it would make the whole freedom and liberty part sound phony... which it is... spartas wealth largely depended on slavery just like the rest of greece... I still like the movie but it is not even remotely close to reality and has given the spartans a very one sided reputation...

Like the Spartan idea of solider service till... what 60yrs? but like the Name of Athens, the Concepts of Athens, the Myths of Athens... Agree with the above basically
