Hydarnes, Commander of the Immortals:
[Xerxes has sent an emissary to demand the Spartan surrender] yesterday, we only probed your positions. When we attack today, our arrows will blot out the sun!

Good; then we will fight in the shade.



Hydarnes, Commander of the Immortals:
Leonidas; you cannot win this fight.

Every day we stand is another day for Greece.
