Research Ramblings: The Spartan Citizenry, Part 11

As noted in my May 2, 2014 post, Spartan warriors were an interesting bunch, and I’m continuing my series on them with today’s fact:

Spartan warriors carried a round shield emblazoned with a lambda.

The lambda, by the way, stood for Laconia or Lacedaemon, the name of the territory controlled by the Spartans. Spartans were also known as the Lacedaemonians.

Tune in next week for more about the Spartans!
