About this deal
To the Spartans, long hair kept its older Archaic meaning as the symbol of a free man; to the other Greeks, by the 5th century, the hairstyle's peculiar association with the Spartans had come to signify pro-Spartan sympathies. Secondly, one could be demoted from the Spartiate status for several reasons, such as cowardice in battle or the inability to pay for membership in the syssitia. A large Macedonian army under general Antipater marched to its relief and defeated the Spartan-led force in a pitched battle.
C., Spartans began developing soldiers shortly after birth, when male infants were evaluated by Spartan elders.Instead, the helots were given a subordinate position in society more comparable to serfs in medieval Europe than chattel slaves in the rest of Greece.
During the Persian Wars, they contributed a small navy of 20 triremes and provided the overall fleet commander. However, nothing is known of matters of wealth such as how land was bought, sold, and inherited, or whether daughters received dowries. Girls as well as boys exercised, possibly in the nude, and young women as well as young men may have participated in the Gymnopaedia ("Festival of Nude Youths").More than 5,300 of the Spartans and their allies were killed in battle, and 3,500 of Antipater's troops.
The inhabitants of Sparta were stratified as Spartiates (citizens with full rights), mothakes (free non-Spartiate people descended from Spartans), perioikoi (free non-Spartiates), and helots (state-owned enslaved non-Spartan locals). Initial Argive successes, such as the victory at the Battle of Hysiae in 669 BC, led to the Messenians' uprising. By the beginning of the 7th century BC, Sparta was, along with Argos, the Peloponnese's dominant power.The Dorians seem to have set about expanding the frontiers of Spartan territory almost before they had established their own state. The Spartan army stood at the center of the Spartan state, citizens trained in the disciplines and honor of a warrior society. The subjugation of 350,000 Helots by 6,000 Spartans was only possible because of the racial superiority of the Spartans.
